Recognized refugees have priority access (if the requirements for admission are fulfilled) for a part of the places within the contingent of Non-European students of study programs with local admission restrictions .
Ulm University offers a preparatory course (Propädeutikum) that provides technical, social and organizational inclusion into the institution and prepares for successful studies. Admission is possible for recognized refugees and foreign students who apply for a non-restricted program at Ulm University and fulfill the formal requirements (language requirements in the Propädeutikum are lower than in access to specialized studies and are raised to the entrance level of Bachelor study programs during the Propädeutikum).
The university library may be used by everybody. Refugees are very welcome to use it. To borrow media from the library you need to get a library card which costs in general 5 Euros for refugees that are not enrolled.
At Ulm University a regional coordination office for advising and supporting persons for refugees at universities and universities of applied sciences in the "Regierungsbezirk Tübingen" is installed, financed by the MWK Baden-Württemberg.
Medinetz Ulm e.V. (website in German) is a medical information center for people without health insurance founded by medicine students. It mediates medical treatment for refugees, migrants and homeless people without health insurance anonymously and free. After a consultation appointments with a medical specialist who cooperates with the network may be arranged.
Service Learning (website in German) students engage in different projects, for example supporting refugee children in their learning process or to help asylum-seeking persons in the region.
