UNHCR’s new portal to provide verified information to refugees on higher education programs

To disseminate reliable information on higher education programmes available to refugees globally, the UN Refugee Agency has launched a first-of-its kind platform developed in response to needs expressed by refugee students.

The UNHCR Opportunities platform aims to provide a centralized database of up-to-date information to refugees both in their current countries of asylum as well as abroad.

It is worth noting that only 3% of refugees have access to higher education worldwide and many of them may not be aware of tertiary education programs available to them.
