StartStudy Bonn

StartStudy Bonn is a volunteer initiative that supports refugees in starting their studies.

Our tasks

StartStudy Bonn is a cooperation between the Institute of Geography and the Initiative für Flüchtlinge Bonn e.V. After 5 successful years, our funding by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) ended in December 2021 and accordingly the StartStudy Bonn project. Nevertheless, we will continue our office hours in the AStA on a voluntary basis. The aim of the project was to increase the chances of access and success of refugees at German universities by providing important information and skills. The project is managed by Prof. Dr. Nadine Marquardt and Dr. Sarah Klosterkamp. The events are conducted by the student assistants Elyas Alyas, Fatima Mahmood and Karline Faul.
