ZU offers scholarships for refugees from Ukraine

ZU invites applications for full scholarships for refugees from Ukraine in two master’s programs for the fall semester starting in September. In addition, it offers additional refugees the opportunity for tuition-free guest studies with creditable performance in its bachelor’s programs.

ZU had shown solidarity with Ukraine right after the beginning of the Russian attack. “ZU is deeply shocked by the Russian military’s invasion of Ukraine and strongly condemns the Russian leadership’s war of aggression, which violates international law,” ZU President Professor Dr. Klaus Mühlhahn said in a message of solidarity. “Our thoughts are with the people in Ukraine who are suffering from this military aggression, and with the Ukrainians who have left their homes to flee.” Our offer of full scholarships and the chance to pursue guest studies grew out of this solidarity and is our contribution to the overall social responsibility.

Ukrainian refugees can now apply for one full scholarship each for the English-language master’s programs in Corporate Management & Economics and in International Relations & Global Politics. A bachelor’s degree in a previous discipline-specific study program is required.

In addition, the bachelor’s programs offer the possibility to apply for guest studies with the possibility to receive credit points according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). These can be recognized in subsequent studies at ZU or at another university. German courses are offered specifically for these visiting students. Prerequisite is a certificate of enrollment from the home university in Ukraine and proof of academic achievements to date.

A guest auditor with participation in courses and use of the library is also possible.

The offers are funded by the Erasmus program of the European Union.
