'The University has always stood for an organisational culture in which an openness to the world is a matter of course and the integration of international students an overarching aim,' said the Vice President for International Relations, Professor Ursula Reutner, under whose auspices the courses are offered. 'In offering these courses to refugees and asylum seekers, the University, academics and students wish to send out a signal that all are welcome. The student committees and the Academic Advice Service will provide guidance, while professors and lecturers open a range of suitable courses to refugees and the Protestant Students' Community (ESG) organises free German language courses. A big "thank you" goes out to all who have worked so hard to make this work and to everyone who has assisted us along the way.'
