Make a difference
Get involved in the START! Studies - Pre-Integration Course at UZH!
START! Studium prepares refugees interested in studying for tertiary-level education or further education. They can familiarise themselves with the content and requirements of a degree course at UZH in order to later complete a regular degree course. The programme thus contributes to the sustainable integration of refugees into the labour market in accordance with their potential.
Get involved in the START! Community and support the refugee participants of START! Study by helping to organise various activities, e.g. to promote language skills or social integration. Especially before the start of the semester and, if necessary, during the semester, you will also support the refugee participants with their orientation at UZH and with administrative tasks.
Become active through tutoring
In tutoring, you are a member of the START! Community (see above), but you will support the refugee participants specifically with individual tutoring in German, English or mathematics. The duration and intensity as well as the content of the tutoring are based on individual agreements. The placement of tutoring primarily takes place at the beginning of the semester. However, applications for student tutoring are accepted at any time. Interested students will be contacted by the project team as needed.
Become active in the Student Integration Commission (SIK)
As a volunteer member of the VSUZH Study Integration Commission (SIK), you support the START! Studies office in the implementation of START! Study. You help to coordinate the START! Community and thus form the link between the office and the START! community. In addition, you will be responsible for organising social activities and events within the framework of START! Study.
