Target groups and events

We are a development-oriented education program for students from Africa, Asia and Latin America who are studying in Hesse. We offer seminars, academies and workshops, promote work experience schemes in Africa, Asia and Latin America and support students in the organization of public events in their cities.

Professional and personal qualification

The program is making a contribution to the professional qualification and thus to the reintegration of the students in their home countries. We are accompanying the students at an early time and for a long term and, by working together, are establishing a meaningful professional perspective for the time after their return to their home countries. STUBE Hessen supports the students to make use of the knowledge acquired in Germany in their countries of origin.


Partners include universities and their institutions as well as all other institutions that attempt to provide educational activities accompanying the foreign students' studies. In particular we work with the foreign students themselves. A participation in the STUBE program is possible in the direct way (for instance at the program planning stage) or via the student associations
and the AStA organizations of the universities.

Organizational structure

STUBE Hessen is a project of the World University Service (WUS) in cooperation with the Evangelische Studierendengemeinden (Protestant Student Associations) in Hessen. The program is financed by the Hessen State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts and with financial means of Brot für die Welt – Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst.
