Access to Higher Education for Refugees


In response to the Syrian crisis and its devastating effect on young people,

Altemus has initiated an awareness-raising campaign on the importance of higher education for refugees, the barriers they face in continuing their studies, and how university communities can support incoming refugee students.

With the generous support of Fiscalini, the European Pressphoto Agency and Toronto Image Works, the campaign was launched in January 2016 with an exhibition at Robarts Library – University of Toronto (Canada). The exhibition will tour various colleges on campus before travelling to other universities in Canada.

If you are a higher education institution and have an interest in hosting the exhibition,

Write to with the subject line ‘Refugee Exhibition Inquiry’
