The Open Learning Initiative (OLIve) at Central European University focuses on opening access to higher education for refugees and asylum seekers. Established in January 2016, it runs two non-degree programs. The Weekend Program (OLIve-WP) is designed for asylum seekers and refugees in Hungary and runs every Saturday (from September to June). The University Preparatory Program (OLIve-UP) is full-time (10 months/AY), fully-funded and accepts students with a refugee status. OLIve-UP prepares students for higher education study (MA and BA levels) at international universities.
