Opportunities for Immigrants

Lower Saxony is currently the only federal state which offers further training courses targeted directly at people with a migration background who have already started or finished studying in their country of origin.

In Oldenburg this is the responsibility of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Education and Communication in Migration Processes (IBKM) » as an interdisciplinary and interfaculty institute of the Carl von Ossietzky University.

The Jade University of Applied Sciences » offers, for example, a post-graduate course of studies in Technical and Cultural Integration at which immigrants who already hold a degree from their country of origin can acquire a Bachelor degree in Civil and Structural Engineering.
