What did we achieve with your support in 2023?

In 2023, our country still had a reception problem and the waiting times for the asylum procedure continued to increase. It was a turbulent year, also politically. The UAF, together with our partners, continued to draw attention to the interests of refugee students and professionals in a consistent manner.  

In 2023 we had 3.220 refugees in guidance of which 1.080 started our guidance this year. 469 have started studying and 251 refugees graduated. 271 got a paid job or internship in 2023.

Thanks to your warm commitment, the UAF will continue what we have been doing for 75 years: recognizing talent and creating (educational) opportunities.
