Refugee students / Foreningen Studenterhuset
Organisation: Foreningen Studenterhuset
StudentRefugees is working to further the access and success in higher education for refugees in Denmark.
The project proposes two main activities, both completely student-led:
- Through the application cafés, local students are supporting newcomers with information and personal guidance to apply to University.
- The buddy programme support newcomers once accepted at University, to have an easier start with their student’s life.
Originally based in Copenhagen, the project is currently extending its activities with pop-up cafe applications, in smaller cities: Funen and Jutland.
The project will also explore the possibilities of cooperation with Iceland and/or Sweden. We see the knowhow and idea behind Student Refugees as open source and are happy to assist other student organisations to realize their own activities within this field.
