inHERE project launches webinar series on supporting refugee students in European higher education

21 September 2017

The inHERE (Higher Education Supporting Refugees in Europe) project is launching a series of webinars hosted by the project partner, the University of Barcelona, to share practices and discuss measures to facilitate the integration of refugees in higher education institutions.

inHERE logoThe first online event on 4 October 2017 at 16.15 will focus on an “Introduction to legal concepts regarding refugee scholars and students”, with the purpose to clarify legal and social concepts such as refugee, asylum seeker, migrant, subsidiary protected etc., as the proper understanding of these terminologies and their implications for higher education access are an essential base to work with this group of people.

The webinar series will run from October 2017 to February 2018 and – in addition to legal concepts - will cover themes such as recognition of prior learning, measures for higher education access, setting up preparatory courses, measures for integration, and overarching diversity management. Examples featured in the webinars have been selected from close to 300 initiatives presented on EUA’s Refugees Welcome Map, and listed in the inHERE Good Practice Catalogue (GPC) on welcoming refugees in higher education.

You can already register for the first webinar on legal concepts and definitions.

Erasmus plus programme European Union logoThe inHERE project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme and brings together EUA, UNIMED, Campus France, the University of Barcelona, Sapienza University, as well as the UNHCR as associate partner.
