Refugees welcome? Recognition of qualifications held by refugees and their access to higher education in Europe – country analyses

This study analyses how selected countries use education as an instrument for inclusion of refugees, asylum seekers and persons in refugee-like situation focusing on two main aspects: access and recognition of qualifications. The aim of the research is two-fold. On the one hand to have a better knowledge and understanding about the initiatives already taken by higher education actors or lack thereof with regard to access to higher education for refugees and recognition of their qualifications and on the other to help ideas travel across the contexts and be applicable in other countries by indicating promising practices to foster access to and successful completion of third-level education for student refugees.
