For whom was the UAF founded?
The UAF (Foundation for Refugee Students) was founded for refugee students and professionals. This means:
- You are entitled to protection under European asylum law or international human rights treaties. In other words: you are a refugee. And:
- You asked for or received asylum in the Netherlands. And:
- You were highly-educated in your country of origin and/or have the potential to work in your profession in the Netherlands (at least mbo 3 level).
If you fall within our target group, then please have a look at the conditions that we apply or check the UAF Advisor. Due to a high workload and increasing waiting times, we have changed the consultation hour by phone to a consultation by e-mail. You can ask your question by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, containing your phone number. We will contact you in four business days. You can also ask your question through Facebook or Twitter. Our webcare team is standing by to answer your questions!
Welcome to the UAF Advisor
Answer the questions in the UAF Advisor to receive tailored advice. You can then contact us by phone to apply for (financial) support from the UAF.
Our aim is to help any refugee students or professionals who need our support, but the UAF is a foundation with limited resources. We depend on donations and contributions.
It may occur that even if you do meet all conditions, we might not be able to provide you with assistance. Another reason we might not be able to assist you is because you do not fall within our target group. In both cases, we will still try to assist you as much as possible with tips, so you can take the necessary steps yourself.
