Summary/Abstract: The frequently used notion of inclusion may be understood correctly if we do not only consider it as a social idea or a political requirement, but we may observe it in its practical realisation. Owing to this, in the following I will show a relevant example of the opportunity of providing inclusion in a community of a college (szakkollégium) set into the framework of higher education. Based on the theoretical framework I will analyse the practical implementation. I would like to show that inclusion can be gained in all fields with providing the appropriate means and theoretical approach. The example of the practical implementation that I will present is the Wlislocki Henrik College of the University of Pécs. This institution has solidified the basic theoretical characteristics of the notion of inclusion during its functioning of more than a decade. This established a stable foundation for a complex programme supported by considerable resources. This project aims at providing a constantly more inclusive system of services, supporting more than 30 underprivileged, in its majority roma members in their advancement in higher education.
