One of the casualties of this mass migration is Syria’s university education system. Now, two brothers with links to Oxford's medical sciences division have set up a website to support Syrian medical students.
Syria's educational infrastructure has become massively overstretched during the ongoing conflict. Although some students are still able to attend large lectures, there are no longer sufficient resources and staff to deliver adequate small-group teaching sessions. Students no longer have the chance to question a tutor about more difficult concepts, and medical students in particular are feeling the lack of opportunity to clarify points and discuss techniques.
