MUSIC – Making Universities Ready for Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity (2019-2022) project aims at developping a comprehensive program for employees at European universities to break down barriers for international students, namely migrants and refugees, in the use of educational and administrative services.
With the significant increase of enrolled international students, the role of university-employees becomes more important at all levels of the academic system. The integration of refugees, migrants and international students into the higher education system promises great opportunities, as it also enforces the internationalization of higher education and the promotion of positive developments in universities.
Through the qualification of employees of different work areas and different occupational groups within the “microcosm university”MUSIC project aims at promoting the social inclusion of refugees and migrants groups.
For this 3-year project 7 partner organisations across Europe will work together: Leibniz University of Hannover, Institute for didactics of democracy (Germany), Synergy of Music Theatre (Greece), Speha Fresia (Italy), University of Piraeus (Greece), University of Vienna (Austria), University of Pavia (Italy) and University of Kaiserslautern (Germany).
MUSIC project is funded by Erasmus+ programme of the EU.
