SuXr, which reads “super”, stands for "university students for refugees".

The new edition of the SuXr Project will take place from 6 October to 1 December 2023.

SuXr is part of the wider University project FUTURA (University Training for Refugees and Asylum Seekers), which is now at its sixth edition and whose goal is to give asylum seeking students and holders of international protection the opportunity to receive university education.

SuXr offers University students an interdisciplinary learning opportunity on forced migration and on the issues deriving from integration processes, topics that are increasingly important for active citizenship and that can involve a variety of areas of study and professional skills.

The training experience

The participants will take part in 8 training sessions of 2.5 hours each on Fridays, from 15.00 to 17.30. The lectures will be given mostly by University professors from different Departments and Centres and will feature testimonies from representatives of third sector organizations. After the theoretical part, the participants will have the opportunity to volunteer at one of the associations and organizations recognised by the University (this is the learning by doing part).

Participation is free but registration is required. Please register for each event by filling in the appropriate online registration form. 

The training sessions are held in person, at the Faculty of Law (Room 6, Via Giuseppe Verdi, 53, 38122 Trento). 

For organizational purposes, please register at least 2 days before each event by filling in the appropriate online registration form. 

The volunteering experience

The associations and organizations that will host the volunteers will be presented at meeting at the Faculty of Law on 1 December, from 15.00 to 17.30.

At the end of the training, the participants will have the opportunity to make contact with the organizations they are more interested in to start the volunteering experience (75 hours to be volunteered by 31 December 2024). The volunteers will be involved in a variety of activities.

At the end of the volunteer experience, the hosting organization will certify the work done and inform the University, that will issue a certificate of attendance. The Departments and Centres decide how to award credits for this experience.

For further information on the award of credits, the participants should contact the Ufficio Offerta Formativa e Gestione Studenti of their Department, Centre or School.

Scientific coordinator:
Professor Donata Borgonovo Re
