University Support for Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Young People
You may study at university if you are an unaccompanied asylum-seeking young person. However, you may not be entitled to pay home fees and you may not be eligible for student finance.
Some universities use their discretionary powers to allow unaccompanied asylum seeking young people to study as home students.
Discretional leave to remain
You may be able to access university support if
- You live in England
- You have lived in England for 3 years
Indefinite leave to remain
You may be entitled to home fees and student finance.
If you are interested in applying for university, it will depend on your immigration status. Please contact your Personal Adviser who can assist you with this. You should also check with the individual university before making any commitments to join a course.
