Hi Hazha,

It´s good that you have already sent off your certificates to be equated! This is definitely essential to being able to apply to uni programs. Two months is I think not too long when considering all of the certificates that are currently being processed... but where did you send everything to? Maybe there is a contact that can check on the status of your certificates.

In terms of applying to Masters programs, I think that there will be easy to find International Business Management programs in English. Is that what you would be looking for, or should I also **** for programs in German? For general information on the process, check out:

Dear Julia, thanks for your reply and yes I am looking for International Business Management programs.
But do you have any information about the nordreihn westfalia because as I know I will not be allowed to change my city until I get an Ausweis at least.
So if you have any information about any university that provides such programs to the refugees like me I would appreciate it.

The links that Henriette posted are great for general information and contact information. In terms of specifics programs in NRW, I´ve found a few business/management programs:

Hi Hazha, I think it is great you want to continue studying. Probably, it would be a good idea, before you apply, to get  some kind of coaching to choose the subject, and discuss your expectatives. An MA in Bussines does not mean anymore what it meant 10 years ago, people who get the most out of it are those who already are working within the area and have already some experience, but I grant you I do not have all details, and that is why I think it would be advisable to find some support to make the decision  because it takes years and lots of financial and other efforts (even if you would get a grant), especially because you already have a Master, even though not in this subject, but a great  Subject nevertheless that could open plenty of doors for you. I think  caritas offers councelling, and there must be other providers, public and private. I could try to find out more if you would be interested.
