We want to give refugees a chance to study, so TH Bingen has initiated an integration programme, called Integra, to prepare academically qualified refugees for a study at our University of Applied Sciences.

This programme is supported by the DAAD with funds of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The Integra Application opens on January 15th and ends on February 15th 2018.

Who is Integra for?

For admission to study at a German university, applicants need to provide a German language certificate of C1 or B2 and a higher school certificate. For some study courses in engineering, internships are a prerequisite as well.

However, most refugees cannot show all required proofs, since they may not have learned sufficient German yet or because documents and other certificates may have gone lost on their escape. Moreover, international applicants are not used to the German educational system and our university standards.

To open our university to refugee students, we have launched the Integra programme, which enables refugees to get academically prepared in order to apply for their desired study course at Technische Hochschule Bingen.

Who can apply for our Integra programme?

If you...
... are a refugee
... have B2 German language proficiency
... have a higher school certificate or a TestAS certificate
... are interested in studying at Technische Hochschule Bingen
... are open-minded and willing to learn - then we would love you to apply for our Integra programme!

If you are unsure whether you are qualified, or if you do not meet some of the requirements but would like to participate, please contact us directly.
