Mobility flows in and out of Syria

  • Mobility flows are very limited, due to the war and war-like situation of the country for many years. While incoming mobility is almost none, outbound flows are ongoing.
  • Funders of mobility: international funds, HEIs and the national Ministry of HE.
  • Geographical scope of mobility: due to the recent difficulties in the exchanges with Europe (in terms of visa and opportunities), Syrian HEIs are looking primarily at exchanges with Russia, Iran, and China.
  • During undergraduate studies, it is mostly students from private universities who go on mobility, while students at public universities go on mobility during their Master’s or Phd, as a training period.
  • Academic and administrative staff mobility is ongoing, and is very well recognized at the HEI in terms of prestige and reputation, being socially and culturally valued.
