Volunteering through programmes set up by the UOC

We debuted the Refugee Welcome Programme during the 2016/2017 academic year to help provide university access to people whose academic and professional careers had been cut short due to their need to seek refuge from armed conflicts, humanitarian crises, persecution on the basis of their religious, ideological or cultural beliefs, or any other struggle of this nature.

Since then, nearly 80 volunteers from our university community, including students, faculty and management staff, have lent a helping hand to the more than 100 refugee students that have studied in our classrooms, smoothing their transition to the university environment.
