Open Learning Initiative - OLIve

OLIve is a free of charge, academic non-degree programme to people of refugee and asylum seeking status to support them in connecting their previous professional and academic experience to their new lives in Europe, including the possibility of higher education studies at a later stage.

OLIve is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission and realised by the Media Governance and Industries Research Lab at the Department of Communication of the University of Vienna, in cooperation with the CEU – Central European University, Budapest, and the University of East London. Courses will be held at the University of Vienna.
