University studies

Young people with a migration background still don‘t decide for studies often enough - even though a lot of them would have good opportunities at universities and universities of applied sciences - not only because they often know multiple languages and cultures. Someone who has the talent should make his or her way - no matter if coming from a rich or poor background. This is why different forms of financial support exist for skilled young people who do not have much income. Among these is the state education support, called BAföG and Stipends. Furthermore, loan and support programs for certain groups of immigrants exist which are designed specifically to prepare for studies in Germany.

From school to university

But, how do get into university? Many universities and universities of applied sciences offer open days so that interested students can get informed. They present their offer of studies detailed on their websites online. Additionally, personal advice meetings can be scheduled, for example through the central study advice of the University of Bonn. The federal unemployment agency (Agentur für Arbeit) offers an overview about the university landscape and offers of studies in Germany. If you would like to study in Bonn, the „Studentenwerk“ student club in Bonn shows you the first steps to studying.

Applying directly or applying through the "Stiftung Hochschulzulassung" (foundation for university admissions)? ?

Many paths lead to university. If you want to study, you can apply directly with the university of your choice. However, in this case, you will find out too late if you got accepted or not. Therefore, an alternative ist the German foundation for university admissions (Deutsche Hochschulstiftung). A large part of all places to study are still distributed through this foundation next to the direct applications. If you are insecure, which subject you would like to study and how the courses of studies are designed, you should get advice. In the meeting you should ask as many questions as you have - until you get rid of all doubts.
