RW2022 Live Events - Thursday
Live on Thursday:
Learning to Live
The Learning to Live project was an Erasmus+ funded initiative that aimed to support migrant and refugee students in Higher Ed in Europe. The Irish team created a web-hub which we hope will be a useful “one-stop shop” resource for staff and students in higher education who are looking for resources to support vulnerable migrants. In addition, we undertook a qualitative piece of work speaking to students concerned and hearing their perspectives. The Learning to Live team look forward to telling you all about this innovative project.
