Displaced / Refugee Learners

Displaced / Refugee Learners are students who are classed as being either Refugee or Seeking Asylum, or have another immigration status such as Limited Leave to Remain (LLR) or Discretionary Leave to Remain (DLR), due to being displaced from their country of origin. Students who are Seeking Asylum, or have DLR or LLR statuses, are considered to have 'overseas status' and therefore are not eligible for home fees or student finance. Students with Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), Refugee status or who are here under Humanitarian Protection are granted 'home status' and therefore are eligible for home fees and student finance. 

Students we support

If you are a home fee, full-time, undergraduate student with refugee status classed as either Refugee, Indefinite Leave to Remain, or Humanitarian Protection, you may be eligible for support from the Widening Access and Student Success team. The availability of support, financial and otherwise, is subject to confirmation of eligible status and the time you have held that status.
