Studying for Refugees
Since the winter semester 2015/16, Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences makes full admission for refugees possible, even with incomplete files - that is, if one owned a higher education entrance qualification in her or his country of origin, however, is not able to provide the documents here. The latter is often the case, due to the circumstances of an escape.
Thus, the University allows nationwide firstly the possibility for refugees to study in general, also without proof coercion, and finally for all undergraduate bachelor's degree programmes even with restricted admission (NC).
This pilot project puts into use the resolution of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs from 8 November 1985.
