Insights into our study programs

The guest student program

As a guest student you can attend courses of study at the University of Wuppertal free of charge. By joining the program you can get an idea of possible courses of study and everyday life at German universities.

The program In Touch for Guest Students is particularly designed for refugees who are interested in applying for a course of study at the University of Wuppertal. All guest students participate in our German courses. The preparatory course “Mathematics in German” is provided for all those who would like to join a degree course in Mathematics, Computer Sciences, Natural Sciences or Engineering. After consulting their respective lecturers all guest students can also participate in selected courses of their choice. Enrolled students of the university, i.e. Buddies, advise guest students on how to structure their semester program and how to deal with administrative matters. There are also specific advice services for the transition to our undergraduate or postgraduate courses.

What does the program include?

  • Preparative German  courses, propaedeutics & introductory seminars
  • Support by a personal buddy
  • A PIN for receiving access to the computer network of the Centre for Media and Information Processing (ZIM)
  • The possibility to attend specific lectures
  • Information and advice on university application procedures, TestAS and admission
  • Networking with other In Touch participants at monthly Meet & Greet events

Counseling centers, such as the International Office and the Central Student Advisory and Counseling Service, support you in choosing  and applying for a regular course of study. You will be individually accompanied by Wuppertal students. The buddies will be happy to help you explore the campus and master everyday university life.
