Humane, accomplished, open to the world – these are the properties that define us. We are convinced that academia and research have no boundaries and we gladly contribute to the culture of welcome.
The Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) is committed to active and sustainable integration of refugees. We are convinced that academia and research have no boundaries and we gladly contribute to the culture of welcome.
Currently more than 300 refugees take part in different programmes preparing them for entering or continuing their studies at RUB.
The RUB supports refugee students on their way to a successful degree by offering courses, counselling and a scholarship programme during their studies.
In addition to degree courses, RUB also offers refugee students the opportunity to engage in a wealth of activities and to seek assistance on different issues.
The RUB supports fugitive teachers in teaching at German schools and advises pedagogical specialists in the care of children with flight experience.
With the commitment to researchers at risk the RUB particularly lives up to its guiding principle "universitas" – the unbiased, interdisciplinary interaction of researcher-teachers and learners.
Lehre und Forschung der RUB behandeln die Themen Flucht, Migration und Integration in öffentlichen Vorträgen und Lehrveranstaltungen.
RUB students and organisations have launched initiatives and services to enable volunteers to support refugee students. Join in!
