Our e-learning model has enabled over a hundred refugees to complete postgraduate specializations, study languages and take open courses, regardless of where they are from or where they are currently living.

The UOC's Refugee Welcome Programme has been providing support to people who are persecuted in their countries of origin because of their beliefs, culture, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as to those who have had to flee due to armed conflict or violence, since 2016.
