The comparative, cross-country study reviews the links between integration and higher education policies. It documents the conditions and circumstances for access, retention and completion of higher education for migrants from third countries, including those with a refugee status.
Concrete recommendations to remove barriers and to promote integration are provided for the European and national policy levels, as well as for higher education institutions.
