About the RhEAP Program
The Refugee Higher Education Access Program (RhEAP), co-led by The OSUN Hubs for Connected Learning Initiatives and BRAC University Center for Peace and Justice, is a 12-month bridging program intended to upskill students in the needed language, analysis, academic writing and basic content knowledge for success in university.
Currently, the RhEAP Program is underway in in Kenya, Jordan, Bangladesh and other parts of Eastern Africa.
RhEAP is simultaneously globally influenced and locally contextualized, featuring universally acknowledged best practices—from student-centered to project-based learning—and locally rooted approaches to addressing students’ psycho-social and emotional learning needs. RhEAP is designed around big questions that thread through the modules; learners are invited to consider such questions through various disciplinary lenses and via different methodological approaches. Courses are offered in a blended format and all courses have on-the-ground facilitators who are refugees themselves and are trained by the OSUN faculty.
Credits and Applying
RhEAP learners will earn university credits on a Bard College transcript and an OSUN RhEAP Certificate. Most importantly, all RhEAP students will receive individual advising and support for applying to BA programs and transferring existing credits. RhEAP accepts applications twice a year, in May and December. To apply, please contact [email protected].
