The Bremen universities together with the language centre of the Bremen universities jointly organise the fourth Erasmus Staff Week focusing on language policy, language learning, multilingualism and related issues in the context of higher education institutions.

Colleagues from all administrative departments and other associated fields of work from our partner universities are invited to participate.

Both, the hosts and participants will present best practice examples, ideas, and concepts, which will be analysed and discussed in interactive workshops. The workshops will take place on the individual campuses of the host universities in Bremen and Bremerhaven. Participants will thus have the chance to get to know the different types and features of German Higher Education Institutions.

The programme includes a special stream for librarians.

Meetings with different faculties and administrative departments are part of the programme.
