Newcastle University Provide Scholarships for Refugees and Asylum Seekers!

This petition had 620 supporters


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to education. Yet the right to education is being denied to people seeking refugee protection in Britain. STAR (Student Action for Refugees) are working to change this and invite you to join us to sign this petition to ask Newcastle University to provide at least 2 fully funded scholarships for refugees and asylum seekers.

We want people who have fled war, torture and persecution to fulfil their academic potential and build successful lives.

We know that universities benefit from opening their doors to people seeking refugee protection through the diversity of cultures and life experiences they bring. A number of universities have already adopted equal access including Manchester, Leeds and Royal Holloway, so Newcastle can join an ever growing group of universities committed to making life better for refugees in the UK!
