The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki has created a ‘studies guide’ for refugees that choose to stay and continue their studies in Greece, in the context of the programme Supporting University Community pathways for REfugees-migrants – S.U.C.RE.
The programme focused on the European Universities response in the academic needs of migrant and refugee students as well as academics in the promotion of good practices for their integration and support in higher education institutions.
“We spoke to 200 individuals working with refugees and created digital educational material as well as a digital guide ‘of good practices’ based on the experiences of those already involved in the specific sectors, as well as a review of the existing ‘good experiences’,” said the dean of the faculty of education Professor Ioanna Bibou at a press conference.
S.U.C.RE. is a two-year ERASMUS KA2 programme that is funded by the State Scholarship Foundation via the European Commission with the Aristotelion University of Thessaloniki as coordinator and the University of Koln, the Free University of Amsterdam and the Greek Council for Refugees as partners.
