Welcome Student-refugees Programme

University programme to help refugees

The VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) actively supports the integration of refugees and encourages those with an academic background or academic ambition to make use of the various opportunities offered on campus.

The VUB studies programme has been explicitly opened to help refugees.  The University also supports refugees with language courses, which may help to prepare for future studies at the VUB. The offer comprises an intensive English (and Dutch) languages course in 2016 summer semester. The focus of this programme has to result in the enrollment for one of the study programmes at the VUB.

Certificate equation is not part of this programme. If you want a certificate equation, please (cfr. NARIC-procedures).

Dr. Mohammad Salman is the contact person for refugee-student matters, coordinates the project that supports access and integration of refugees at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Please feel free to get in touch!
