Coronavirus update: Although shutdowns and cancellations are the norm right now we are happy to say we are still working hard (from home) to increase access to university for refugees and asylum seekers. What’s more scholarship applications are still open, new scholarships are being announced (with more on the way) and changes have been made to increase access for those with humanitarian protection status through a legal challenge. So in a dark time we hope this comes as bit of light and hope. We at STAR encourage people to keep applying to scholarships and not put their lives on hold because of what is happening. Although the current situation is very difficult, universities continue to plan for next academic year and, if you’re able to, you should too.

Please see the website for further information.
