The University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow, Scotland, is offering scholarships to prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students who are seeking asylum in the United Kingdom.
The scholarship meets the cost of tuition fees and includes an allowance for essential study-related expenditures.
Deadline: 28 May 2023
Applications will be considered from potential students who:
– hold a conditional or unconditional offer for study at the University of Strathclyde for 2023-2024; and
– have submitted, or are the dependant of someone who has submitted, an application to the Home Office for recognition as a refugee under the 1951 U.N. Convention on the Status of Refugees and not yet received a decision from the Home Office on that application; or
– have been offered leave to remain in the United Kingdom on the grounds of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, provided that the student has not become eligible for student support from the relevant student funding body in Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland.
Applicants must live within the Glasgow area at the point of application as housing costs are not covered by the scholarship. Applications from prospective students outside the Glasgow area will be accepted only if the applicants submit written evidence of appropriate accommodation arrangements at the point of application.
Applications will also be considered from students who have already started their course of study but have subsequently applied for asylum and can no longer access their original funding. In these cases, it will be necessary to establish that the original funding for the study is no longer available and applicants will be required to provide supporting evidence.
