Special Program for Displaced People

Global Multilingual Online College will facilitate delivering online academic courses and Intensive Language Programs to individuals with demonstrated difficulties in accessing higher education courses due to conflict or other circumstances free of charge.

This is the scenario of thousands of students displaced from Syria and those remaining in Syria. Due to displacement and the conflict in their cities, higher education must be put on hold due to lack of accessible options. Many of the opportunities available for displaced Syrian students are not available in their native language of Arabic. Global Multilingual Online College is working in collaboration with Syrian faculty, students and SUNY Albany to deliver online academic courses in Arabic for medical and nursing students in Syria and in Turkey. These academic courses support the students in their goals to continue their medical education.
