The war in Ukraine is driving teens and young adults to leave their homes and possessions behind as quickly as possible and take only the bare necessities with them.
Many young people have set out alone to find a place of refuge, often with only the things that fit in a small backpack. They not only leave their familiar surroundings and their family and friends behind, they also leave behind their educational plans and dreams for a professional future.
The MORE initiative at the JKU Linz aims to provide support services to students with a refugee background, ensuring they can continue to pursue their professional plans and dreams. The program provides academic advising services and assists refugee students as they begin their studies at the university. Refugee students receive a start-up package that contains a few items needed for their studies and everyday life on campus.
