Warwick STAR Equal Access to Education Event (17/2/17)

ffffff

On Friday 17th of February, Warwick STAR launched their Equal Access Campaign with an event that encourages us to try and find solutions to some of these issues newly arrived people face in the UK. We had a host of speakers, as well as engaging group discussion on the issue.

STAR National’s Equal Access campaign seeks to redress the balance, by calling on universities to classify all those seeking asylum as home students for fee purposes and for them to publicise their Equal Access policies so that potential students can apply more easily.

The event was attended by around 80 people from both the University and beyond. In addition, the money was raised from donation buckets and the proceeds of a £2 three-course buffet, with over 20 volunteers contributing with home-made dishes. We also had a speaker from STAR national and an introduction by our President, Reem Doukmak.
