Study with Besan

Besan meets the director of the UAF


A large number of the newcomers in the Netherlands have fled from another country. That is why I thought that it was important to visit the oldest refugee organization in the Netherlands. The UAF organization was established in 1948. Every year they offer guidance and assistance to more than 2.500 refugees. What does the UAF do? What can they do for refugees? And what can they do for you? And what are the conditions for you to be able to register with them?

No one can explain this better than the director of the UAF, Mardjan Seighali.

In my vlog, Mardjan names some of the conditions needed to get the support of the UAF:

1. You are a refugee.

2. You are motivated to learn the Dutch language at a high level as quickly as possible. You must also have the capacity to study in higher education.
