Support for Asylum Seekers

The Sanctuary Award:

Edge Hill University provide a support package for two eligible individuals at any one time to help them achieve their Higher Education goals. This is in the form of a tuition fee waiver plus an additional £800 scholarship for the cost of books and travel. This scholarship is open to students who are:

  • Seeking asylum in the UK, or a dependant or partner of someone seeking asylum
  • Seeking asylum in the UK, or a dependant or partner of someone seeking asylum who has been granted limited leave to remain or some other form of temporary status.

Please note: Spouse/civil partner must have been the spouse/civil partner on the date which the asylum application was made. Children/step-children must have been aged under 18 on the date on which the asylum application was made.

Applicants must:

  • have been offered a place (conditional or unconditional) on an Undergraduate Programme at Edge Hill University BEFORE applying for the ‘Sanctuary Award’. Applications from those who have been offered a place on a Postgraduate Programme cannot be considered.
  • by virtue of their immigration status, be unable to access UK Government Student Finance (tuition fee loans or maintenance loans/grants)
  • be able to provide evidence that they sought asylum on arrival in the UK and that their asylum application is under consideration by the Home Office

Priority will be given to applicants who live within easy commuting distance of Edge Hill University.

The ‘Sanctuary Award’ is payable in each standard academic year of the course. This is unless, as a result of an asylum application, you (or your parents or spouse/civil partner) are granted status in the UK, which entitles you to UK Government Student Finance. If this happens, you must inform the University and the award will cease from the start of the next academic year, when you would be expected to apply for Student Finance instead.

Sanctuary Award 2019-20 Applications

To apply for the 2019-20 ‘Sanctuary Award’ please read the guidance notes carefully before completing the application form, paying particular attention to the eligibility criteria and guidance on completing the application form. Please complete all sections of the application form and return to international@edgehill.ac.uk by the closing date of 28th April 2019.

Self –funding Asylum Seekers

Any self-funding asylum seekers attending Edge Hill University will be classed as overseas for fees due to temporary residency status.

However, in agreement with Directorate to further the humanitarian effort, students will be charged the same as the current Home fee rate, which for the 2018/19 academic year is £9,250.

 

Living costs

Once you arrive here to study, you will need to budget for your general day-to-day living expenses.

It is much cheaper to live in the North West of England than it is in the South East or London, so your money will last longer and go further.

For general living costs for things such as books, food, clothing and transport, it is very difficult to give an exact figure, but we recommend that you budget approximately £7,000-£8,000 per year for all living expenses including accommodation. This is, however, just a guide and individual needs and requirements will be different.

The British Council also have a useful budget planning in the UK section on the Education UK website that you may find of interest.
