German universities were among the first institutions in Germany to establish refugee integration measures, such as guest-student programmes, advising services and languages courses. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) allocated €100m from 2016 to 2019 for this purpose, with the programmes igniting a process of rethinking and expansion for the support measures for international students at German universities in general.
