Fellowship for ukrainian university didacticists offered at Ruhr University Bochum 

Fellowship-Program for Ukrainian Academics in the field of didactics of Higher Education


The Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s largest universities. The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) (Zentrum für Wissenschaftsdidaktik = ZfW) is RUB’s central place for all questions about teaching and learning in higher education. Our work focuses on e-learning, didactics of higher education and academic writing. We provide all faculty with advice on questions such as e.g.: How can groups of students be activated? How can exams be designed in a meaningful way? How can students be motivated to write and read? In addition, the ZfW implements large projects e.g. in the field of learning analytics and artificial intelligence as well as in the field of inclusion. It also plays a central role in shaping teaching in the Europe-wide university network UNIC.


Fellowship for Ukrainian Refugees


In order to express our solidarity with the people in Ukraine, ZfW provides funding for Ukrainian refugees for a guest stay at our centre.



  • We provide funding ranging from € 1200 up to € 2400 per month, depending on your personal preconditions, for a duration of six months.
  • You will be integrated in our team and develop your own project within our field of work.



As part of the fellowship, we give you the opportunity to get to know the work of a German CTL. You can try out the development and implementation of your own ideas in the German university system:

  • You may develop and implement workshops for university-teachers in English.
  • You may deal with digitalisation in university education.
  • You may contribute to shape teacher training offers in the fields of diversity, inclusion and sustainability.
  • You may advise English-speaking students on topics related to academic writing.
  • You may contribute to European international cooperation within the European University UNIC.
  • You may support the preparation of conferences or the public relations work of our centre. SEITE 2 | 2 We also give you the opportunity to work on a proposal for a possible follow-up project, although this would need to be funded by a different institution and approval may not occur until after your stay at the ZfW.



  • You have Ukrainian citizenship and you are directly afflicted by the war in Ukraine.
  • You are a graduate student or a practitioner in didactics of Higher Education, eLearning, academic writing, educational sciences or a related discipline.
  • You communicate fluently in English (or German).
