Information for Refugees in the Asylum Process

If your asylum application has already been accepted, you can study in Germany just like any other international degree applicant.

Asylum seekers whose asylum process is still pending can also study for a degree in Germany as a temporary residence permit is sufficient to entitle them to study.

To study at a higher education institution in Germany, the same entry requirements apply as for other international degree applicants. You need to hold a university entrance qualification.

The website Study in Germany offers further information on studying in Germany. There is a section dedicated to refugees who would like to study for a degree in Germany. This information is also available in English, Arabic, Urdu, Pashto and Dari.
