How do I become a guest auditor?
Submit an application for guest auditor status to the Admissions Office.
Ideally, you should submit the application by 30.4. for the summer semester and by 31.10. for the winter semester.
Please list the desired courses from our course catalog in the application and select courses with a maximum total of 8 SWS (semester periods per week).
The applicant will receive a confirmation of his or her status as a guest auditor, which will allow him or her to attend the designated courses. If there is an attendance limit, you can only attend the course if there are still places available. We recommend contacting the lecturers of the course to arrange for the guest attendance.
Attendance confirmations for guest auditors can be issued upon request by the corresponding lecturer.
The guest auditor status ends automatically at the end of the respective semester and must be applied for again for the following semester.
The guest auditor is not enrolled in a study program and is also not entitled to take examinations.

Ukrainians with professional qualifications and need for counseling
If you have already brought your documents, the appropriate regional IBAS (Informations- und Beratungsstelle Arbeitsmarkt Sachsen) in Dresden, Leipzig or Chemnitz will be happy to advise you. IBAS advises on the recognition of foreign vocational and academic qualifications, and provides information on procedures, documents and the relevant offices. For Ukrainian teachers there are currently even special ways into the profession. IBAS informs about this in an information sheet ("Information for Ukrainian teachers").

Deaf refugees Saxony is a team of volunteers from the sign language community of Leipzig, Dresden, Chemnitz and Zwickau (supported by the City Association of the Hearing Impaired Leipzig e.V.).
We are networked with sign language speakers, interpreters and social workers. We want to locate deaf Ukrainian refugees and provide them with care and support in one place. Therefore, we are currently establishing a network to provide (short-term) premises for the people in need of help, where they can stay for the time being.
At the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau (WHZ) there are sign language students, as well as deaf students, who can support actively. In addition, there is the Landesdolmetscherzentrale (LDZ) in Zwickau, which supports us and coordinates the sign language interpreters in Saxony. Furthermore, the Center for the Deaf in Zwickau, as well as the Deaf Sports Club Zwickau (GSV Zwickau) offers the possibility to get into sign language contact. Deaf refugees are a group that needs special protection.
We have set up an e-mail address (Help.DeafRefugees.Sachsen[at]gmx.de), where hearing as well as deaf helpers can contact us with offers and can be put in touch with deaf refugees.
