There are different ways to find courses near you.
- Look for universities close to you and contact them directly. Sometimes universities have special programs for refugees and know exactly how to guide you.
- Get in touch with local organizations such as welcoming centers. Special integration programs for refugees are often in place in many countries.
Once you have started the search, you should try to restrict your choices. You can, for example, focus on official city websites or universities in the city you are searching for.
