7. HRK survey of universities: Continual sharp rise in number of newly enrolled refugees
The academic integration of refugees at German universities continues to progress well. An increasing number are successfully making the transition from the orientation and preparation phase to their chosen course of study. This was revealed by the most recent survey by the HRK, which has seen the best response to date, of its member universities in the 2018/2019 winter semester. The number of new enrolments with a refugee background has risen sharply from 3,000 in the previous winter semester to almost 3,800 in the current winter semester.
