Support for refugees from Ukraine

Russia's attack on Ukraine in violation of international law goes on since February 2022 and continues to claim civilian lives and force hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. Since then, TH Köln has contributed its part to help, focusing on measures to support university staff in the country in particular - teachers, staff, students and researchers.

So far, TH Köln was able to directly support numerous refugees from Ukraine with scholarships, courses of studies and preparatory German courses. The refugees are Ukrainians and third-country nationals who studied in Ukraine before the war. The range of support has also been expanded including research projects in which students and pupils from Ukraine participate.
