Università degli Studi di Perugia

The University of Perugia joined in the University Corridors Project for Refugee Students, together with other Italian universities.

The Project is promoted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and counts on the direct involvement of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Caritas Italiana, the Waldensian Evangelical Church, along with the participation of the the Umbrian Regional Board for the Right to Higher Studies (ADISU) and other local partners.

The Project’s aim is to consolidate and strengthen a legal and safe entry channel to facilitate the access of refugees to higher education in Italy. It will also promote their social integration and active participation in the academic life, in harmony with the Global Compact on Refugees and with the Manifesto for the Inclusive University, developed by UNHCR and endorsed by the University of Perugia.
