Studying as a refugee

As a refugee you have already overcome a lot of obstacles and met all kinds of challenges to finally arrive in Germany. We are glad that you are interested in studying at our university despite the circumstances and welcome you here.

Our team will inform you about the study programs, the admission requirements, the application procedure and about the support you will get as a refugee at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.

We can offer the following support to recognized refugees:

  • issuing the university recommendation for cost exemption in the uni-assist portal
  • participation as a guest auditor free of charge
  • in case that you have lost all documents during your flight we might find alternative ways for a university entrance qualification
  • information about financial support (ex.: BAföG)
  • recurring informational events for this specific group of applicants
  • Peer mentoring by tutors of the Welcome Centre during your studies

If you have any questions or would like to make a personal appointment, do not hesitate to contact us!
