Support Refugees: Access to Higher Education through Validation

🎓Validation of prior learning opens up possibilities and supports diversity in learning-pathways. We from VINCE project believe this supports the inclusion of new citizens in Higher Education and in society in general. ✌️This discussion group is for academic & administrative staff in HE, migrants, refugees, new citizens, world citizens and everyone who is interested in inclusion, opening up learning pathways and validation! 👉Discuss with us about challenges, risks and chances - because we do not want to just sit and watch, but participate in shaping our future!

University of Vienna is providing Q/A-sessions for asylum seekers/refugees, a good initiative with a focus on the needs of this target group. It is not easy to start studying in Austria as it is connected with bureaucratic issues, taking preparation courses and so on for people who have formal learning experiences abroad.

The VINCE project team and I wish relaxing holidays and a happy new year! 💫 this is also a good chance to look back and to be grateful:

Thank you to all of you for participating in this discussion group and being a part of this movement. Validation processes for prior learning are not common in many countries yet, but promoting awareness that validation can help people in lifelong learning, participation in society, social mobility and many more aspects, can pay off in the future. 💪🎓🤗

All the best,
Isabell

Interesting project in Austria: a peer mentoring project for young refugees to help them to get acquainted in Austria. It is a train-the-trainer programme, supporting peer mentoring, strengthening peer groups. If you are located and know of young refugees who would like to participate, check the post below!
