In order to support the inclusion of Ukrainian students and visiting scholars in study programs at Saxon universities, we have added three additional activities to our program for the winter semester.

With those additional activities we want to make our contribution to improve the situation for Ukrainian refugees who have found their way into higher education in Saxony. The courses are aimed both at employees of Saxon universities as well as Ukrainian academics in diaspora. All activities are carried out by an experienced university educator from Ukraine, with whom we have collaborated on various projects for displaced university teachers in Ukraine since 2016.
