Based on the most optimistic approaches, three times more non-Roma graduates from secondary school than Roma; and eight times more non-Roma admitted to university than Roma.
Ever since our establishment, an average 14 Romaversitas students earn a university degree every year. 85% of our students successfully finish their university studies, which is a high number in the context of systemic racism in Hungary.
Based on our experience gained over more than two decades, the training programme, the community experience and the study grant support the students in a complementary way to reach their educational goals:
• the training programme focuses on academic knowledge and soft skills,
• community provides a posse, a safe space to embrace their identity,
• the study grants ensure they concentrate on their studies.
