New University Scholarships for Refugees

Reading University has become the latest to offer scholarships to refugees. More than 60 universities now offer Equal Access university scholarships, bursaries or fee waivers to people who have claimed asylum in the UK. Student Action for Refugees (STAR) maintain a list of participating institutions.

A new scheme developed in partnership with Reading Refugee Support Group and Reading University Students’ Union will provide up to 14 university scholarships for refugees in the Reading area covering a range of courses and programmes.

Further details about the scheme and courses at Reading University can be found on the Focus on Refugees website run by CTBI.
