In this report, IIE and the University of California, Davis look at the conditions and educational needs of Syrian university students and scholars in Turkey. As few as 1–2 percent of Syrian university-age students in Turkey were successfully enrolled at Turkish universities last year, including less than 1 percent of young women. These enrollment rates, however, increased by more than 300 percent between 2012–13 and 2013–14.
The report identifies:
- The educational needs of Syrian faculty and university-age students in Turkey, including the barriers they face in accessing higher education.
- Recommendations for increasing Syrians' access to higher education in Turkey.
- Opportunities and challenges for the international community to support Syrian university students and scholars in Turkey.
In this report, IIE and the University of California, Davis explore the conditions and educational needs of Syrian university students and scholars in Lebanon. The overwhelming majority of Syrian university-age students in Lebanon, especially Syrian young women, are not continuing any form of higher education or advanced training; in addition, many are facing continued security concerns, as well as popular and official discrimination. The report recommends that the international community "begin to shift the cost of connecting Syrian university students with educational opportunities in contiguous host states." It identifies:
- Barriers Syrians face in accessing higher education in Lebanon
- Existing programs and support models that are effective
- Recommendations for increasing Syrians' access to Lebanese universities
