What is the VUB's InCAMPUS Programme? It is an introductory pathway to university studies for refugees, composed of 5 modules to give refugee students the necessary tools and support to help them integrate at VUB and start/continue their academic goals. This is done through intensive language classes (EN/NL), training on educational methods, cultural orientation courses, psychological support and academic courses from the chosen academic programme.
