New AEC website section on access to Higher Education of refugees and asylum seekers

In light of the large arrival of refugees and asylum seekers to Europe, many European higher education institutions are coming up with strategies and new initiatives to welcome refugees on their institutions. In addition, some local and national governments and NGOs are acting in the neighbouring regions which are currenctly hosting the majority of displaced people.

The different sections of the menu on the left aim at showcasing initiatives and inspiring practices that are being developed, focusing on the case of European Higher Music Education institutions, as well as giving you links to resources on several topics related to the integration of the refugees from the educational perspective. We hope you will find these resources inspiring and useful. If you would like to add an initiative from your own institution, please send it to We are looking forward to sharing as many best practices as possible!
