Welcome Refugees

Peer mentoring and empowerment for students with refugee background

For students with refugee background Rhine-Waal University offers students' peer mentoring. The goal is the empowerment of students with refugee background.

Qualified tutors of the Welcome Centre are specifically trained to be mentors for their fellow students with refugee background. They offer not only orientation at university but also establish contacts to counselling centres and support them in their integration efforts.

The aim of the peer mentoring is to increase the study success of students with refugee background and to support them in mastering the challenges of their studies and private life in Germany. The program is financed by the German Academic Exchange Service.

Anybody wanting to take part in the peer mentoring program can contact the Welcome Centre of Rhine-Waal University. Phone calls or emails are also welcome.
