Asylum Seekers and Refugees

If you are an asylum seeker or refugee looking to study at the University of Glasgow, then there is tailored support available throughout your studies. We offer guidance from the pre-application stage, such as providing information on entry routes and which courses are available, through to supporting you when on-course here at the University of Glasgow. You may also be eligible for an adjusted offer of entry.

For students who are currently seeking asylum and do not have recourse to SAAS funding for tuition fees, we can help you to explore alternative funding sources which may be available to you.

Both asylum seekers and refugees are encouraged to apply to our Sanctuary Scholarships, which provide financial support for the duration of your studies.

We have named points of contact within our team, Jennifer Thompson-Ross and Scott Iguchi-Sherry, at who are here to help you and answer any questions that you might have throughout your application process. No matter what stage you're at, we encourage you to get in touch with us so that we can discuss your options. Even if you're just looking for information about possible future applications, having input from the University from the very beginning can make the whole process much more straightforward.
