Students will benefit from professional university counseling in areas like finding the right university, securing funding opportunities, learning how to present a compelling and strong application, and ensuring they meet the application requirements, such as taking standardized language tests and obtaining letters of recommendation.

“An experienced university counselor is a game-changer for refugees enrolling in university study,” Duolingo said in a news article posted on its blog.

Duolingo has previously worked with UNHCR and the International Rescue Committee to offer services, such as the Duolingo Plus membership and its standardized English language test, free for thousands of refugees.

“We have long believed that refugees are already using Duolingo, but the reality is it’s difficult for us to know that for sure,” the company said. The article added that unexpected learning trends, such a rise in the number of people learning Swedish in Sweden, have been a signal that migrant communities are learning the languages of their new host countries.
