Student Action for Refugees (STAR) has been campaigning since 2008 to ensure that people in the UK seeking refugee protection have equal access to higher education and can join STAR students at university as equals. Universities of Sanctuary would aim to have have equal access in place. Student activists and Student Unions are in a unique position to affect this change. STAR have now produced a new and very useful Equal Access Campaigns Guide /Toolkit and we hope that the City and Universities of Sanctuary network shares this widely.
If you want to campaign for Equal Access at your university you’ll find all the information you need on the STAR Equal Access webpage.
If you are in the UK seeking safety and looking to go to university you can find lots of useful information about bursaries and funding on the STAR Access to University page.
