Asylum Seekers Sanctuary Studentship

Everything you need to know about Northumbia University's studentship for asylum seekers seeking sanctuary in the UK.


2019 Asylum Seekers Sanctuary Studentship

Northumbria University’s Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences is pleased to offer a studentship including a full stipend, paid for three years at RCUK rates (for 2018/19, this is £14,777 pa) and full tuition fees for those who have sought refuge in the UK. Our aim is to support students under the government’s resettlement programme or who are recent arrivals in the UK.

To be considered for the studentship you must have been granted Humanitarian Protection or Limited Leave to Remain in the UK, be a dependant or partner of someone with Humanitarian Protection or Limited Leave to Remain, or you (or your parent/guardian or partner) are an asylum seeker and have submitted a claim within the UK for refugee status and have not yet received a decision from the Home Office on that application.

Project proposals should be aligned with one of the areas outlined in the advertisements below:

Please Note: All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the university and eligibility decisions are final.
