Born in 2019, the UNICORE project (UNIversity COrridors for REfugee students) allows refugee students from Ethiopia to travel to Italy through a ‘regular’ and safe path and, once arrived, continue their studies. The project offers opportunities to obtain study visas and scholarships in third countries. Also, thanks to the wide network of partners (including the University of Bologna, University of Florence, State University of Milan, University of Padua , Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Caritas Italiana, and many others!) students are supported in entering the academic life while integrating in the local social context.
Approdi is a partner in the project, offering psychological support to refugee students, and, if necessary, also to the operators in the project.
