Information on the Toolkit

The toolkit is aimed at students and employees of Swiss  universities who are involved in a University projects for refugee students.

 

Structure & Application

The documents on the various topics consist of theoretical parts (fact sheets, explanatory videos, etc.) and practical activities (exercises, games, etc.). The material can be put together individually to form training courses of varying length and tailored to different target groups (student mentors / mentees).

 

Exemplary training sequences

Exemplary training procedures support you to prepare training courses for mentors* and mentees in your projects. They give you an overview and refer to the different activities that you can find in the toolkit.

Please contact us if you need our support on the planning of training courses: perspektiven-studium@vss-unes.ch

 

Goals of the Toolkit

The toolkit aims to facilitate the organisation and implementation of local projects as well as the planing of internal training and events. In this way, we want to ensure sustainable information collection and dissemination and strengthen networking and exchange between projects.

 

Asking for advice in time

The toolkit is designed to help you acquire a basic knowledge of the topics listed below and to pass it on to the mentors* and mentees of your project. However, neither we at Perspective Studies, nor you as students or supporting persons of refugees are experts in the areas of asylum law, education, interculturality and other issues that you may be confronted with as part of your engagement. If you have any questions that overburden you, please contact the relevant department in time. Contacts are listed within the various topics.

 

Networking & Exchange

Would you like to network and exchange ideas with other university projects as a local project? The opportunity for this is offered by the regular exchange meetings that we at Perspektiven-Studium organize. For direct contact with another project, you find an overview of all university projects in Switzerland, as well as the corresponding contacts, on the page  Overview of University Projects.
