University without borders

Ruhr-Universität Bochum is committed to active and sustainable integration of refugees. We are convinced that academia and research have no boundaries and we gladly contribute to the culture of welcome.

As one of the first universities in Germany, we have therefore set up a scheme to help refugees with an academic background enter a degree course. As a visiting student participating in the Open Auditorium, you are given the opportunity to get to know RUB as well as your discipline. Simultaneously, you will acquire necessary language skills in the German courses, which are financed by the university.

Administrative department 2 (student service and International Office) is continuously enhancing its service portfolio, in order to support refugee students and academics.

If you would like to volunteer or if you are looking for services provided to refugees, you will find the relevant formats on these pages.
