Utrecht University’s Incluusion is aimed at those students with refugee backgrounds who are currently 'on hold' in emergency shelters, refugee centers or in their new houses. It offers newcomers the opportunity to participate for free in all kinds of courses offered by Utrecht University. Incluusion is a call to action to make use of this waiting period. Refugees with academic backgrounds and proper levels of English are more than welcome to apply.

Meeting people from all kinds of backgrounds has been an enriching and educational experience for all involved. It has stimulated diversity and brought new perspectives into the classroom which have benefited students, teachers and Incluusion participants alike.
