Schools & Colleges: University Access Info Pack

We teamed up with Student Action For Refugees (STAR) to create an updated information pack so that schools and colleges can ensure that students who are young migrants, seeking asylum, or have refugee status get the right advice and know where to find support as they prepare for higher education.

We created this information pack together with STAR to encourage more open, positive discussions about immigration in schools and colleges. Many young people facing barriers to accessing higher education find it difficult to seek support from their teacher and peers. Fortunately, our information pack will help to advise young migrants and sign-post them to the appropriate organisations like ourselves who have resources available to support them.  

We Belong visits schools and colleges throughout the year, working with over 1, 300 young people. We understand the difficulties young migrants face in accessing higher education and want to bring comfort to students who may feel like they are going through this alone.

Sharing this information will aid you as a young person seeking support or as a practitioner looking to support young people early in their process to higher education.
