Based on the most optimistic estimates, the chances of Romani students to get admitted to a university are eight times lower than those of non-Romani students.
Ever since the establishment of Romaversitas, on average 14 students earned a university degree each year. 85% of our students successfully finish their university studies, which is a significant result in the context of systemic racism in Hungary.
Based on our experience, the training programme, the community experience, and the study grant all complement each other on supporting our students at reaching 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.
