Counseling for refugees

For all individuals from a refugee background interested in studying: Welcome Campus is here to provide you with all the necessary information.

With its Welcome Campus the University of Stuttgart has set up a coordination center that makes it easier for individuals with refugee status to (re)commence their studies at the university.

The focus here is on individualized counseling as well coordination of projects designed to integrate and support refugees. We are continually adding to our service menu with the objective of enabling the rapid and frictionless integration of individuals with refugee status into university life.


Welcome Campus offers weekly consultation hours to prospective students with refugee background for one-on-one counseling sessions designed to convey information on topics such as:

  • (Re)commencing studies
  • Language courses
  • Offers of financial support
  • Germany's university system
  • University of Stuttgart's intercultural activities

The consultation sessions are also open to accompanying volunteers.


Welcome Campus coordinates and supports the following types of projects:

  • Language courses at no charge for refugees
  • Language mentoring projects
  • The Circle of Friends for Refugees student initiative
  • Construction of a meeting place
  • “Talks on Democracy”
