About this award

The University of Hull is proud to be part of the growing network of Universities of Sanctuary. As part of this, the Undergraduate Refugee Scholarship aims to support one student who has sought sanctuary in the UK and is now eligible for undergraduate student finance, but due to previous education undertaken outside of the UK is not able to take out the Tuition Fee Loan for all years of study.

The award consists of a full tuition fee waiver to cover any years of study for which the successful student is not able to take out a Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England. When the student becomes eligible to receive a Tuition Fee Loan the award will cease.
