Opportunities for Refugees
The University of Bayreuth is committed to helping to make refugees in the region feel at home in their new surroundings. “As an international, cosmopolitan educational institution, we want to create tailored opportunities that are helpful in fostering the integration of our new residents”, said Prof. Dr. Stefan Leible, President of the University of Bayreuth. “We are helping people to help themselves, hosting language courses, and preparing refugees who have a qualification for entry into higher education for the possibility of studying in Bayreuth.”
We also support the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s Philipp Schwartz Initiative for Scholars at Risk.
