STUBE means Studienbegleitprogramm.

It is a support or supplementary program for students from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and South-East-Europe studying at universities in Saxony. It is particularly meant for students without scholarships. STUBE is found throughout Germany as well as in Saxony.

STUBE enables students to get to know people who are away from their home countries but are studying in Germany. Talking together, sharing one's situation, getting tips, discussing the policy questions regarding one's country of origin as well as the world at large, having fun together...all this and more is STUBE!

  • Contacts after studies

STUBE gives scholarships of 1 - 6 months for students from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and South-East-Europe (non-EU-countries). Due to financial constraints, such students are not able to visit their country of origin during their or make new contacts with their family and friends, potential employers and authorities, etc as well as to put into practice the theory they have learned during their studies. Their long stay in Germany makes them strangers of their own land. It is for such reasons that STUBE gives these BPSA-scholarships.
