Welcome Refugees - DAAD Projekt "Integra"

What is "Integra"?

The "Integra" program is part of a comprehensive DAAD package of measures for which the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing a total of 100 million euros until 2019. Integra aims at providing refugees who are fit to study with a chance to gain a foothold at the universities and to prepare them for their studies by offering language courses and special introductory courses.

Integra at TU Ilmenau

With the measures of the DAAD's Integra project, the TU Ilmenau is pursuing the goal of supporting the integration of refugees into their studies and of providing support and assistance during their studies.
