Many refugees in the Netherlands are unhappy with the quality of the integration courses they have to undergo and say some schools are only in it for the money, according to research by current affairs show EenVandaag.
The programme questioned 160 people who had been given a residency permit and had begun the integration programme. Most were Syrian men under the age of 40.
Over half (56%) said the quality of the courses is not up to scratch. 'I get just two hours a week and that is not enough,' one refugee said. Another told EenVandaag that the classroom based course 'is called an integration course but I miss contact with the Netherlands.'
