UB for Refugees

IN-Touch: What is it?

IN-Touch is an official program of the universities of Bremen for refugees to get to know academic life here and keep connected with the academic world. Regardless of the kind of refugee-status – those refugees that have studied at a university before can join our program and discover the campus and social life connected to the universities. You need to have a reasonable command of German or English language to participate (B1).

The IN-Touch program includes:

Access to the university resources, such as the library or wireless network, for self-monitored learning and studies

A Study-Buddy-Partner-Program, to get to know Bremen students and learn more about the campus

IN-Touch: What is it NOT?


Please be aware that the IN-Touch program is no study and no university course. You will not get a university degree and you will not be a regular student. We also do not offer regular language courses. However, through the IN-Touch program you will get a first orientation and first contacts at the universities, in order to understand the German academic system, which might help you later on if you indeed decide to take up a study and apply for a course.

Next start will be October 2016. Registration closeson August 15. Places may have to be limited.


IN-Touch is a model of good practice for integration registered on the website of the European Commission (EWSI)
