Life in Hamburg: Hamburg is an exciting metropolitan city located in North Germany not far from the North and Baltic seas. With a population of 1.8 million, the city has something to offer everyone. Whether you prefer getting lost in famous works of art or among festive soccer fans, visiting a mosque or the red-light party district, eating Indian cuisine or an oversized Wiener Schnitzel with fries, you will be sure to find a niche in Hamburg.

Life at Bucerius Law School: Although Bucerius Law School is located just a short walk from Hamburg’s city center, the small campus has a cozy feel and is surrounded by a beautiful state park. The main campus building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, but has been newly renovated and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Since all undergraduate Bucerius students are required to spend a semester abroad themselves, they know what it’s like to be in a foreign place and are thus particularly open to reaching out to incoming international students.

Extracurriculars: A selection of interesting extracurricular activities balances the academic program at Bucerius. To better acquaint students with Hamburg, Germany and German history, politics and culture, the International Office organizes diverse extracurricular activities throughout the semester. These include guided tours in and around Hamburg, museum visits, lectures on the current political situation in Germany and worldwide, day excursions to nearby towns such as Lübeck, a study day at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea and several social events with Bucerius students. For a complete list of activities, see Extracurricular activities (pdf)...

During the week-long break in the academic program, Bucerius organizes a study trip to Berlin and Potsdam to a limited number of students. This trip offers students the unique opportunity to see Berlin and Potsdam in a way that would normally be very difficult to organize. Students from past years have expressed great satisfaction with the trip and the opportunity to experience a full program at a low cost. The schedule for the study trip 2013 can be found at "Study Trip 2013" (pdf)...

German Language Courses: Bucerius offers German language courses at four levels for an additional cost. The classes stretch over 20 lessons (2 x 90 minutes a week) and are taught by trained teachers of German as a foreign language. Students may opt to take the language courses for 1 ABA / 2 ECTS credit(s) or as an auditor (please note: these credits do not count towards the minimum required by Bucerius Law School). A placement test and interview will take place during the Orientation Program to place students in the appropriate level.
