We will be offering 5 scholarships for undergraduate study commencing in September 2019. These scholarship are intended to help sanctuary seekers progress into higher education.

The scholarship will: 

  • cover the full cost of the tuition fees for a maximum of the normal duration of the undergraduate programme for which the applicant has been admitted until such time as they are awarded a status that entitles them to access student finance.  Applicants wishing to study Medicine or Dentistry are not eligible to apply;
  • provide £5000 per year towards living cost expenses;
  • provide a free place in one of our Halls of Residence for scholarship students who wish to stay in University accommodation. 

The scholarships are designed to support sanctuary students who are not eligible for UK government student financial support. We are currently reviewing our criteria for eligibility which will be based on guidance provided by the Article 26 organisation.
