The warm and welcoming atmosphere you’ll find on campus is one of the things that truly sets us apart.
We work in partnership with The Archdeacon of Canterbury (Canterbury Cathedral) under the Article 26 Project to enable those seeking asylum to progress to higher education.
Applications are open from 1 April - 30 June
Applicants must be:
an asylum seeker/a dependant of an asylum seeker;
Applicants have to agree to keep the Immigration Compliance department of the University updated on their immigration status at all times. As soon as they receive a decision from the Home Office, they must provide the University with a copy of the documents, whether it is a positive or negative decision. The University may not be able to keep a failed asylum seeker who has exhausted their appeal rights within the University.
Applicants must meet these strict eligibility criteria and be in a position to verify their circumstances in order to apply. Application is a competitive process and only a limited number of scholarships can be awarded each year.
