ArbeiterKind.de gives first generation students a strength-focused positive identity in relation to higher education through 70 local groups run by centrally supported volunteers. This involves one to one and group peer learning and counselling.
The Pre Academic Programme (PAP) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is a new programme of summer courses aimed at first generation students (140 per year).
