Information and options for Refugees from Ukraine

Інформація українською мовою

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

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

If you have a residence status in Germany according to §24 AufenthG (Aufenthaltsgewährung zum vorübergehenden Schutz: Residence permit for temporary protection) as well as proof of German language skills at least on level B1 with a language certificate (except for English-language Master's programs), please apply via uni-assist for the degree course „Sonderprogramm für geflüchtete Menschen” (Special program for refugees) at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. We will then check which of the following options is suitable for you:

  1. After your documents have been checked by uni-assist and if your German language skills are proven to be at level C1, you can directly apply for a study place for the winter semester 2022/23. For this purpose, please send us a message with your uni-assist application number to admissions(at) in time before the application deadline (see below).
  2. If you do not have a direct university entrance in Germany and need to visit a preparatory college (Studienkolleg) first, you can - after your documents have been checked by uni-assist and your German language skills have been proven to be at level B1 - apply for a place in our preparatory courses. For this purpose, please also send us your uni-assist application number within the mentioned application deadline (see below).

Note: If you have German language skills at least on level B1, you can already register for our study-preparatory German courses when applying for the special program.

For refugees who do not yet have or cannot prove German language skills, we offer an A1 German course, starting on 09 May 2022.

You do not have to study at Frankfurt UAS to attend this course.

Please note that the course starting on 09 May is already full. You are welcome to register here to receive information in case another course will be offered.
