Partnership between Kiron & Albstadt-Sigmaringen University
In the context of the IMMIG-BW project within the FESt-BW program (Funding: Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, Baden-Württemberg), we established a close cooperation with Kiron in order to support Kiron students during the transfer process to become regular students at our university. Moreover, we guide and advise Kiron students about transferring to university courses in Germany and to universities within the Baden-Württenberg state in particular. The Albstadt-Sigmaringen University, together with the University of Tübingen, is one of the first universities in Baden-Württemberg to have established a partnership with Kiron.
