Sanctuary Seeking Students

Sanctuary Students

Applying and studying at university can be a challenge for any student, but for those who are seeking sanctuary or been granted refugee status in the UK, there can be many legal and emotional challenges as well. This is why the University of Salford works in partnership with local and national organisations, to ensure that we can offer effective support for these students.

All sanctuary seeking students, those with humanitarian protection and those with refugee status (not just Article 26 students) can talk to our specialist student adviser by using the link on the right to book an appointment.
