AUC is a community that believes in equal opportunity for all. We believe factors such as countries of origin, race, ethnic background, gender, sexuality and all other ways of differentiation shouldn’t limit acces to education.
Right2Education is an opportunity for refugees to access an education in which they are able to learn Dutch and English at various levels (A1, A2 and B1) In the environment of Amsterdam University College, they are no longer refugees but guests, which is why we like to refer to them as guest students. As with any education, we think it’s important to have a balance between the academics and social activities which is why we also organize social events such as potlucks, ice skating and movie nights.
We believe it is no longer enough to be witnesses of what is known as the “refugee crisis”. This initiative is about getting involved, taking a stand and contributing to the search for equality and justice.
