Discovery Program

for Refugees

Supported by:

Help as a mentor and accompany a refugee at UZH!

The trial program for refugees offers refugees the opportunity to visit the University of Zurich as guest auditors and to take part in lectures. Participants can get to know the content and requirements of a degree at UZH in order to later apply for a regular degree. Each participant is assigned a mentor (students at the University of Zurich) who acts as a direct contact person for any questions. In addition, various events are organized for the refugees and mentors such as lectures, dinners, excursions or trips.

The project is coordinated and organized together by the Trial Program Commission (SPK) of the VSUZH and the International Relations Department (IRO) of the University of Zurich.
