Information and options for Refugees from Ukraine

Due to the current situation in Ukraine, the federal government, the states and the universities have agreed to provide refugees from Ukraine with quick and uncomplicated access to the German education system.

With this in mind, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences offers various opportunities to start or continue studies or preparatory courses on site:

If you have a residence status in Germany according to §24 AufenthG (Aufenthaltsgewährung zum vorübergehenden Schutz) as well as proof of German language skills at least on level B1 by means of a certificate (except for English-language Master's programs), please apply via uni-assist for the desired degree program at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. Please indicate in your uni-assist account that you have a refugee background. It will then be checked which of the following options is suitable for you:

  1. After uni-assist has checked your documents and if your German language skills are proven to be at level C1, you will take part in the award procedure.
  2. If you do not have direct access to higher education in Germany and therefore have to attend the Studienkolleg first, you will be invited to take the entrance test at the Studienkolleg after your documents have been forwarded if your German language skills are proven to be at level B1.

Note: If you have German language skills at least on level B2, you may also be able to register for our study-preparatory German courses.
