German city of Bremen is home to the University of the Arts Bremen, also known as Hochschule für Künste Bremen or HfK Bremen. Since its founding in 1873, it has become one of the most renowned artistic institutes. There are about 900 students, 65 professors, and about 180 assistant professors at the University of the Arts Bremen's Fine Arts and Design Faculty and Music Faculty, respectively. The University of the Arts Bremen is a center for education and culture. At the University of the Arts, practice, education, and research all coexist in a distinctive learning environment that blends art, music, design, and science. The University of the Arts Bremen's Faculty of Art & Design offers programs in Fine Arts, Integrated Design, and Digital Media, enabling the institution to provide students with the highest level of individualized support in addition to a wide range of opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and experimentation. Performance, Music Education, Church Music, and Orchestral Academy are the four areas of specialization for the Bachelor's and Master's degrees offered by the Faculty of Music. Volunteers (FKJ) and tutors (student assistants) from the International Office are delighted to assist full-time international students and visitors with any issues or problems that may occur, such as trips to the authorities or the search for housing. They assist students with settling into Bremen, plan extracurricular activities, offer useful guidance on language course options, and take part in the initial outreach to refugees.
