DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

CAP is a service offered by the University of Bari owing to the decision of the Academic Senate in December 2015.
Its aims are:
• to promote processes of life-long learning;
• to certificate and give credit to the competences that everyone can obtain in formal, informal and nonformal
contexts.

It is called "European Qualification Passport for Refugees" and is a document providing an assessment
of higher education qualifications obtained in the country of origin and allows admission to further
studies in universities in the countries of arrival, facilitating the process of integration and employment of beneficiaries of political asylum or international protection.
