Since Winter semester 2015/16, the Universität Hamburg through its study orientation program #UHHhilft guides refugees willing to study in Germany, whom for fleeing are unable to continue their studies in their home countries. Our team helps them find their path through the regular studies and also advice regarding Study programs, applications and orientations in the Universität.
Also, we offer study related guidance to refugee students already admitted at the Universität.
We advise that you get more information about us from our website and fill out our online registration form to partake in our offers!
