“Come and learn how to support young people to reach university.

This three hour training session costs £70 per participant, or £60 for those from voluntary sector agencies.

RSN’s access to higher education (HE) training for practitioners enables participants to:

  • Grapple with the particular difficulties that young refugees and asylum seekers face in accessing, remaining and progressing in HE
  • Understand what different young people with a variety of immigration statuses are entitled to re: fee status, student finance, scholarships, grants and other forms of support
  • Learn about the latest legal and policy developments affecting access to HE for this group of young people
  • Grow in ability to meet the support needs of young refugees and asylum seekers attempting to progress to university, including tips about advocating on their behalf with local authorities and universities
  • Consider alternative progression routes and funding options for young people who are not eligible for home fee status/student finance
  • Share best practice and practical information about how to help young people from asylum-seeking backgrounds to move forward

This training session is facilitated by Emily Bowerman, RSN’s Head of Higher Education, and Mir Rahimi, RSN’s HE project coordinator.
