DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

Utrecht University’s Incluusion is aimed at students with refugee backgrounds who are currently 'on hold' in emergency shelters, refugee centers or in their new houses. The program is directed at those with an academic background (even if the person has not completed an university degree in his/her home country) and a command of the English language at proficiency level. It offers newcomers the opportunity to participate for free in different types of courses offered by Utrecht University.

Incluusion offers courses throughout the academic year. During the summer, Incluusion students can take part in regular courses offered by the Utrecht Summer School of Utrecht University. The Utrecht Summer School offers over 200 intensive academic courses (varying from one- to more weeks during the months July - August) which are part of numerous disciplines: economics, business, art, culture, language, music, history, healthcare, (life) science and social science. The program is usually enriched by social activities like excursions, social gatherings, festivities and sports. Incluusion does not offer Dutch or English language courses.

After having succesfully completed one course, students will receive a certificate.
