ENLIGHT published first "Success stories of Inclusive Mobility"

Inclusion, equality and diversity are vital elements of ENLIGHT’s overarching vision. This implies making international student mobility accessible to the whole student body in terms of background, affluence, living situation e.g., for students with disabilities or health issues; from less favourable socio-economic backgrounds; with specific (cultural, religious, and personal) motivations. For this reason, ENLIGHT universities provide counselling and services for better use of existing mobility options for students from underrepresented groups and develop flexible learning paths ‘customised’ to students’ individual needs as well as tailored measures for inclusive mobility to remove barriers for international learning.
