The chances and opportunities for refugees to get access to universities are in some cases very few in the European countries. The project WELCOME seeks to find ways for refugees to get access to universities and higher education more easily. The project aims to contribute in finding solutions to make higher education more accessible for all the people living in the EU, and collects experiences from countries which are more advanced in this topic. The project mainly focuses on the exchange of practice and good practices in the countries and regions of the partners of the consortium. The results of this project are important and will shed light upon the matter since they contribute to the future of a knowledge- based economy.
