Hi all! 

I’m studying in Ukraine and have Ukrainian citizenship. I’m now in Germany and would like to continue my studies. Will my previous academic achievements be recognized, and who can I contact? 

Thankful for every helpful answer !

Hello @ Lidia_W,

thanks for reaching out to Wefugees and your very important question.

Whether your academic records will be recognized or not will be judged by the university of your choice, at which you want to continue your studies. Usually the equivalence of the German and foreign curricula is taken into account, as well as the number of semesters completed so far and even the kind of university entrance qualification might be relevant.

To get an overall picture of your chances, you can first address to "Garantiefonds Hochschule (GF-HS)": https://bildungsberatung-gfh.de/. GF-HS not only provides counselling, but can also help you with language acquisition, offering courses for students. Also a  very good source for orientation for students from Ukraine is Malengo: https://malengo.org/ukraine.

The details have to be clarified with your university then. The application deadline for foreign students in Germany is 15th of July and 15th of January every year. As a rule, a C1 command of German is required, if you want to study in German. There are also programmes in English, mostly at the MA level.

Please don't hesitate to come back to us, if further questions arise.

I hope my answers were helpful and I’ll be very pleased if you contact me again with further questions. I'm a member of the mbeon-staff and I‘ll be glad to guide over a longer period of time. mbeon is an online advisory service for migrants via the mbeon-app, which you can download on your smartphone for free. You'll find me in the mbeon-app under my location „München” and then my name “Frau Müller“ and get confidential one-to-one advice in a safe virtual room where nobody can read messages. For further information please visit www.mbeon.de.

Best regards
