Bielefeld UAS offers a “Study on, Ukraine! Welcome Semester” for all students who had to flee Ukraine and cannot continue their studies at their home universities.
Starting on 9 May 2022, students are able to choose from a variety of courses ranging from intensive German classes to English-taught sessions in the fields of business, social sciences, health and computer science.
In addition, students will receive information on studying and living in Germany. They can use the semester to obtain further qualification, to plan their continued studies in Germany or to make meaningful use of the time until their return to Ukraine.
For instructions regarding the registration process, please see the document “Application Info Ukraine” in the download box.
The following documents are required for registration via the online portal:
