Welcome @ Viadrina
Viadrina Open Lecture Series
Crossing Borders. Building Bridges.
The Viadrina Open Lecture Series (VOLS) is a series of academic sessions, which has been primarily designed for refugees in Brandenburg, but is also open to all those interested. VOLS wants to offer refugees a first access to academic life in Frankfurt (Oder) and give them the opportunity to establish contact with students and scientists at the same time. The lecture series consists of fourteen lectures that will be held throughout the winter semester 2016/17. All lectures will be held in English and will feature topics from all three of the University‘s faculties and administrative departments. No application is needed and there will be no admission fee. The programme has been extended, which implies more lectures than in the fall semester. Additionally, there will also be lectures covering aspects of the Syrian and Egyptian legal system, as well as Syrian economy. The programme is open to all those interested, regardless of whether you have an academic degree or background. With this project, the university wants to promote equal participation for everyone in society .
