Event description
Are you a student at a UK university from a refugee or asylum seeking background? Join us for our Refugee Scholars Conference!

About this Event

This online event, organised by graduates from refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds with the support of STAR and Universities of Sanctuary, will be an opportunity for students from across the country to come together and share their experiences of higher education.

As we embark on an academic year unlike any other, we hope that this gathering will be a chance to build a supportive network and share guidance to help you make the most of university life. You will also have the opportunity to tell universities what they are doing well and what they could be doing better to support students from refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds.

What will the event include?

  • Opportunities to meet and make friends with other students from refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds;
  • Workshops to help you build skills and confidence;
  • Q&A sessions about university life;
  • A chance to hear about the experiences of students and recent graduates from refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds;
  • Opportunities to provide feedback on university support and share any concerns that you may have.

Is this event for me?

This event is for university students who are seeking asylum or have refugee status in the UK. You should be currently studying or about to start studying at a university in the UK.

How will the event be organised?

The event will take place on Zoom in two sessions over the two days:

  • Monday 5th October, 5.30pm - 8pm
  • Tuesday 6th October, 5.30pm - 8pm

Register your place here and we will send you a full programme closer to the date. We will also send you a Zoom link on the day of the event.

We hope to see you there!
