The British Council with partners UNHCR are commissioning this research consultancy to research and analyse the provision and coordination of tertiary education opportunities available to refugees of the current Syria crisis within host countries in the Middle East and Turkey: namely Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. The research will consider opportunities provided by Higher Education Institutions and local tertiary education organisations within these countries, and those provided by international agencies and donors.  The research will also analyse the coordination mechanisms for the provision of Higher Education opportunities, and how accessibility, suitability and quality are assured.

We are seeking an experienced research partner – either individual or group – to work with the British Council and UNHCR on the study. The researcher would be provided with logistical support and required access to complete the research through the British Council’s extensive office and partner network in the Middle East and North Africa, and support from UNHCR which is central to the relief effort in this crisis.
