Refugee and Asylum Seekers

We know that sanctuary seeking students are often not just experiencing the challenges of a new learning environment, but also cultural dislocation, financial struggles, limited or no family support, significant changes to identity – or loss of identity - as well as the possibility of lasting impacts of past trauma. We are mindful of all student’s journeys to higher education.

Being at Warwick isn’t just about the opportunity to study at a world class academic institution, it is also a pathway for personal growth.
