Refugees without evidence of their qualification
The Lisbon Recognition Convention was established in April 1997 and came into effect in Germany on 1 October 2007.
Article VII of the Lisbon Recognition Convention offers refugees, desplaced persons and persons in a refugee-like situation the opportunity to have their qualification recognised, even in case documents are missing.
This obligation outlined in Article VII of the Lisbon Recognition Convention has already been fulfilled by the Federal Republic of Germany through the adoption of the resolution "Access and Admission to Institutions of Higher Education for Applicants who are Unable to provide Evidence of a Higher Education Entrance Qualification Obtained in their Home Country on Account of their Flight" of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs dated 3 December 2015.
The universities of the respective Laender are responsible for the plausibility checks which are recommended within this resolution. Please contact the university that is responsible for your admission procedure.
