The German DAAD has published a report on the integration of refugees at German higher education institutions. Given the huge number of refugees in Germany – certainly compared to other European countries – this is no small matter. The report is based on data from the DAAD itself, from the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies, and from the German University Application Service for International Students uni-assist e.V. The German “Integra” (Integrating Refugees in Degree Programmes) is described in detail, analysing the composition of the participants I .a. by original, type of institution and degree programme, the German state, and residence status. Unsurprisingly, Bavaria and North-Rhine Westphalia have the greatest numbers and together account for almost one-third of the total.
