Refugees Welcome at HU

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) is committed to supporting refugees on their way to a university education and promoting networks of dedicated University members.

HU_RefugeesWelcome_Störer_screen_rgb.pngUnder the umbrella of the initiative “Refugees Welcome at HU”, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin bundles offers of support for refugees with regard to garnering access to the university, starting studies and researching and making everyday life at the HU easier.

Refugees who are interested in studying, for example, can apply for free access to the guest auditor programme (Gasthörerschaft); can use the open office hours of the general counselling services (Studienberatung) or can participate in special multilingual courses. Refugee researchers can take part in individual counselling regarding research opportunities. In addition to these specific offers, there are numerous other voluntary initiatives from university members.

Furthermore, HU researchers work on refugee and migration topics and issues in different research projects.
