One of the reasons for running a small pilot was to learn quickly, adapt our model and fully meet the needs of Syrian students. During February 2017, the Jamiya Project commissioned Leon Cremonini to conduct an independent evaluation of our pilot courses in Applied ITrun in partnership with the University of Gothenburg in Za'atari and Amman in Applied IT.

Jamiya Project Survey: Syrian refugee higher education needs (Nov 15 - Feb 16)
We wanted to better understand the higher education challenges facing Syrian refugees, so we created an open online form for Syrians to fill in. It was posted online for a few months from November - February and received over 800 results! This has been extremely useful in shaping our projects. For those interested in crunching the data themselves, we've opened up the raw results here. Have fun!
