The politics of university access and refugee higher education programmes: Can the contemporary university be opened?

Abstract

In recent years, a number of access or bridge programmes aimed at students who have experienced displacement have been established in Europe. While often anchored in the problematic and exceptionalising discourse of a ‘migration crisis’, such programmes also attempt to re- spond to a number of unfavourable circumstances faced by displaced students. In addition to fi nancial support, they usually consist of a set of interventions aimed at developing students’ linguistic and academic skills, helping them identify their discipline and academic programme of interest and providing support with applications for degrees and fund- ing. As illustrated in this volume, these programmes have taken many forms and mobilised different pedagogies, philosophies and ethos of inclusion and participation. They are also embedded in different types of higher education institutions and systems, which leads to a range of arrangements, objectives and relations to the broader structures of the university.
