Symposium on Expanding Higher Education Access for Displaced Students

In February 2020, we held our first official gathering in Abu Dhabi for counselors, higher education representatives, and NGO workers to discuss how to help refugees and other displaced students access higher education. All counselors working with this population of students, as well as representatives from colleges and universities, are welcome to attend.

Here are some topics we discussed at the symposium:

  • The current state of higher education access for refugees
  • How to quickly provide access in current conflict zones
  • How to blend in-presence and online learning models for students who can’t make it to campus
  • Financing challenges at the microlevel

Please revisit this site in the coming months for details about future events focused on expanding higher education access for displaced students.
