Abstract:The implementation of civic integration courses dates already more than a decade back and a lot research has been done about this topic. Researchers made specific studies about the efficiency of the trajectories in terms of learning and the chance for employment Furthermore evaluations about personal guides of the participants have been done, too. But the number of studies going in depth and ask about satisfaction or dissatisfaction of single participants is relatively limited. What are the factors leading to positive or negative feelings toward the trajectory? Therefore, this qualitative research tries to deepen the understanding why individual migrants appreciate a program or why not. This study firstly indicates that the reflection of quality of the trajectory, the right selection and how expectations and objectives are communicated play the most significant role in appreciating a trajectory or not. Furthermore, the chance for economic gain, the higher educational background as well as a younger age play a significant role on a person’s positive attitude toward a civic integration course. Furthermore, gender has an impact on satisfaction with in terms of the selection procedure. Women who are willing to work tend to be unsatisfied with those civic integration courses which are related to child education. The existence of a native Dutch partner has a positive partner when he/she takes an active role in the integration process of the migrant.
