We call on every British University to contribute to welcoming refugees by opening their doors to people fleeing persecution.
The current refugee crisis is the largest humanitarian disaster facing Europe in generations. We need everyone to play their part to help those fleeing violence find safety and to help them rebuild shattered lives when they do. We call on all British Universities to welcome people who are fleeing persecution by classifying them as home students and creating at least 10 studentships or bursaries. We need to invest in refugees so they can make a full contribution to our society, and in the future work to rebuild their own.
