The scholarship is offered for a tuition fee concession to all asylum seekers or children of asylum seekers who meet the eligibility criteria. While your asylum application is under consideration by the Home Office, you will be entitled to pay the ‘home’ rate of tuition fees.
Asylum Seekers Fee Concession
- 31 July 2022
• You or your parent/guardian or spouse/partner must have submitted an asylum or human rights application, which is awaiting a decision from the Home Office; • You or your parent/guardian or spouse/partner have applied for asylum before applying to study at university; • You hold a conditional or unconditional offer to study at Queen Mary University of London in the following academic year AND accepted this firmly; • You have not completed undergraduate degree level study elsewhere. • You must meet the general eligibility criteria set out above. • You must be holding a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on an undergraduate programme, except those courses offered by the School of Medicine and Dentistry that lead to qualified status as a doctor, dentist or dental hygienist or therapist. • You must have accepted your offer from Queen Mary University of London as your firm (first) choice. • The award will remain in place while your asylum application is under consideration by the Home Office. During this period your fee status will be recorded as ‘overseas’ but you will be required only to pay the ‘home’ rate of tuition fee. If or when your asylum application is successful and you are granted refugee status, your fee status will be changed to ‘home’. Please contact the Student Enquiry Centre (email@example.com) if your status changes. • The award will be provided in each standard year of study for the course to which you are admitted. Extension of the award to cover repeat years of study or additional years resulting from a change of programme, e.g. from three to four years, will be approved on a discretionary basis only. • You will be required to provide evidence of your immigration status annually in advance of enrolment in September. We reserve the right to verify your immigration status with the Home Office. • Awards are discretionary and we reserve the right to withdraw awards if we receive information from the Home Office that you should not be studying in the UK.
