Leibniz Universität Hannover

Studying at Leibniz Universität

  • As a guest auditor

    Refugees who cannot or may not yet start studying can attend courses free of charge as guest auditors to get a first impression of the University and everyday university life. This is an excellent opportunity to gain further qualifications or to acquire or brush up the knowledge in a particular subject area. There are no prerequisites for becoming a guest student. Simply ask us to send you the lecture list – or check out the programme taught in English yourself - http://www.international.uni-hannover.de/englischsprachigesangebot.html?&L=1. The offer includes courses from all faculties as well as a comprehensive seminar programme aimed specifically at guest auditors.

    With aproval of the professor and the respective faculty it is also possible to take exams and thus collect credit points for prospective later academic studies at Leibniz Universität Hannover. If you are interested, please consult us in advance. Ludolf von Dassel is happy to advise you.
