Open Lecture Hall

The 'Open Lecture Hall' (OLH) has been established in cooperation with Leuphana's Guest Auditor Program. It allows refugees with an academic background or an academic interest to attend selected courses (except German language courses) and to become acquainted with German university life. Participation in the OLH is free of charge. However, the university cannot provide a semester ticket nor reimburse any travel costs.

The main languages of instruction are German or English. Therefore, a good command of the German language or the English language is required.

Integral part of the OLH is the buddy program. Upon request, each participant will be assigned a student buddy, who provides advice and support throughout the semester.

Important notice

Participation in the Open Lecture Hall does not constitute admission to university studies at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg. Participants will be registered as auditing students. Regular course attendance entitles participants to receive a certificate of participation at the end of the semester.
