Apply now: UNIC Superdiversity School - Accessibility in Higher Education

Who gets access to higher education and research careers? Who faces barriers? What can we all do to foster equal opportunities? See the details below and join us at the UNIC Superdiversity School to exchange experiences, debate, and learn!

European University UNIC is inviting students, academics, and staff to join the UNIC Superdiversity School's Accessibility in higher education event. In this three-day superdiversity school, we will discuss questions about accessibility, barriers, and gatekeeping in higher education. We will be looking at accessibility and inclusion but choose an intersectional approach to access higher education and research.

At this event, you will be able to meet and discuss with international participants, learn about the state of research, develop new ideas and share good practices. We aim to create an easily accessible online event. All status groups and their contributions will be welcome.
