To facilitate the access of individuals who have been granted international protection status to university education and research, promote their social integration and active participation in academic life, UNHCR proposed the Manifesto for an Inclusive University (MUI) to Italian universities.

MUI priority actions:

  • recognition of foreign qualifications for admissions;
  • student support and benefits;
  • support measures to foster the inclusion of refugees in the academic environment and tools to enhance their participation;
  • support measures to enhance the inclusion of refugees in local communities;
  • career service;
  • the UNICORE Project – University Humanitarian Corridors

MUI falls within the framework of the Global Compact on Refugees and the EU Strategy for Excellence and Inclusive Universities and the National Integration Plan.

The UNICORE Project

The UNICORE university humanitarian corridors project is the MUI's initiative designed to enable refugee students to arrive in Italy in a regular and safe manner to pursue their studies by attending a university degree programme.

A total of 33 Italian universities (see map) took part in 2022 in UNICORE 4.0 by providing 69 scholarships. The project, launched in 2019 as a pilot phase, expanded in 2020 and 2021 by supporting 71 refugee students. The fourth edition doubled the number of scholarships by including refugees residing in Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

In order to guarantee appropriate reception standards, the Project is based on a national partnership, comprised of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, UNHCR, Caritas Italiana, Diaconia Valdese, Centro Astalli and the member universities, with the support of local partners.
