Migration has become one of the most important twenty-first century problems. Global migration trends and the scale adjust not only the socio-political, economic spheres, but also encourage the search for new educational approaches to migrants’ integration process. There are about 232 million migrants in the world. About 10 percent of them - forced migrants (refugees, etc. asylum seekers) are looking for the help in their integration process into new societies. For achieving successful integration of forced migrants it’s important to understand integration process as a difficult two-way process (newcomers and local communities) and to look at this process from educational perspective. In this way, during integration process both - forced migrants and local societies - face new, get atypical experience, endure changes and acquire new knowledge or skills.

So, the experience of integration is connected with deep changes and is also continuous from education process. Proceeding from it an empirical part of a research is constructed on the analysis of migrants‘ personal experience of integration and identification the educational factors of this process.
