Sanctuary Scholarships – Education without borders

Supporting the living costs and tuition fees of a displaced person studying at Exeter.

The University of Exeter has launched a Sanctuary Scholarships scheme, which is available for people who are seeking asylum, have limited leave to remain, ‘humanitarian protection’ or refugee status, and International Care Leavers.

We are a global institution – we have students from over 140 countries across the world and are in touch with alumni in 183. We offer a truly international student experience as well as a safe learning environment in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. This is an experience we wish to be open to all.

We are determined to support these vulnerable people at a time when borders are closing around the world and ensure that they do not miss out on higher education. The Exeter Sanctuary Scholarships will cover the fees and living costs for displaced people who cannot access student finance and are denied the right to work.

This year we have so far been able to award the scholarships to two undergraduate students. It is our hope to be able to provide this opportunity to more students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, in the future. If you would like to help us provide a better future for students who have already been through so much, you can support us by making a donation today.
