Apply for Incluusion-courses as refugee

If you have an academic background or experience with studying at a university in your home country, Incluusion might be worth considering! Incluusion welcomes all newcomers with academic backgrounds and proper levels of English to apply.

Qualifications and requirements

You are more than welcome to apply for the Incluusion program if you have an academic background, and also if you have not completed your university degree in your home country. Please also be aware of the fact that you are required to have a good command of the English language at proficiency level. 

Which courses can I attend?

At the moment, the registration for block 4 (the final block of the academic year 2018/2019) has closed.

During the summer months (July/August) there will be an opportunity to take part in an Utrecht Summer School course. The course guide for the available courses during the summer can be found here. The application instructions for the Utrecht Summer School are described on the first page of the course guide. Please read them carefully. 

Incluusion does not offer Dutch or English language courses.  If you are interested in following English courses then the English Academy for Newcomers is the right choice for you. 

How to apply

When registering for Incluusion, you are registering to potentially take part in university courses, which means that the educational level is relatively high. Application for the Utrecht Summer School has opened. Please look at the course guide for more information. 



After having succesfully completed your course, you will recieve a certificate. 

Please note that it is not possible to complete a full degree through the Incluusion programme.

I don’t like telling people I am a refugee. Now I can say I’m a student.
