Session 08.12

Refugees in the classroom and beyond: what's the difference?

What happens once refugee students are admitted and enrolled in academia? The session will explore the experience of integrating refugee students in the classroom and facilitating their transition to the job market. Particular focus will be on the refugees’ perception of the European education system, on how teaching and learning in HE can benefit from their unique experiences, and how HEIs can help to bridge the gap and facilitate the transition from the classroom to the job market.
