The project University Corridors for Refugees UNICORE 3.0 is promoted by 24 Italian universities with the support of UNHCR, Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Caritas Italiana, Diaconia Valdese, Centro Astalli and other partners. It aims to increase opportunities for refugees currently residing in Ethiopia to continue their higher education in Italy.

43 students will be selected to begin degree courses in September 2021. The selected students will be exempt from tuition fees at the universities participating in the programme and will receive financial support for plane tickets and visa-related expenses, as well as a study grant to help them during their stay in Italy.

The selection process for admission will be carried out by and is the sole responsibility of the individual universities. To learn more about the selection criteria please also visit the dedicated page at this link.

The calls for applications for 2021 are now closed.
