Help and Support for Asylum Seekers & Refugees

If you fall into one of the two categories, there are two forms of financial support available to you:

Sanctuary Scholarship

The Sanctuary Scholarship scheme is open to asylum seekers and refugees applying for undergraduate and doctoral programmes at the University of Exeter who are not able to access student finance.

The scholarship provides full tuition fee waivers, grants for living costs and research funding where applicable.

For more information, visit Sanctuary Scholarship

Partial tuition fee waiver

The University of Exeter offers a partial tuition fee waiver for undergraduate asylum seekers (those whose cases haven’t yet been decided). This is administered solely at the discretion of the University of Exeter.
