Bristol University launches free degrees for refugees and asylum seekers

(Bristol Post)- The University of Bristol is launching scholarships to allow refugees and asylum seekers coming into the city free access to a degree.

The Sanctuary Scholarship Scheme offers support towards the cost of full or part-time undergraduate and master's degrees, and PhDs.

The university says the aim is to enhance opportunities for people from asylum seeking and refugee communities, and to aid integration, as well as breaking down the additional barriers that individuals from refugee backgrounds face in accessing higher education and employment.
