Study Entry Phase for Refugees

The project intoSTUDY is a refugee integration initiative by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover.

It is designed with courses from the MINT area (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences, technology), which will be taught in English, as well as provide enrollment in a German language course.

The goal of this project is to integrate refugees and other international students, after the completion of the project period, as a regular student in the University of Hannover or another German University.

What the project offers:

  • Intensive German courses in the morning (up to level C1 and TestDaF)
  • University courses in the afternoon in English (from the 2nd/3rd semester on in German)
  • Daily Tutor sessions
  • Computer labs during class time and self-study time
  • Guidance counselling for careers and studies
  • Excursions
  • Application Training
  • Empowerment courses 


The curriculum during three semesters consists of the following courses (for example): 

  • Scientific working techniques
  • Professional communication
  • Foundations of Mathematics
  • Foundations of computer science
  • Introduction to German law
  • Introduction to programming

The subject examinations taken during the three semesters offer the opportunity for orientation and preparation for future studies and can later be credited in part to individual study programs.
