Refugee Access to Higher Education

Academics for Refugees strongly supports campaigns for increased access to higher education for refugees and asylum seekers.

Important campaigns include:

  • the Refugee Council of Australia’s Education for All campaign that encourages universities to offer fee-remission tuition scholarship to refugees on Temporary Protection Visas and Safe Haven Enterprise Visas and asylum seekers on Bridging Visas. For a full list of current scholarships for refugee and asylum seekers tertiary students, see the RCOA scholarships database.
  • the Education Special Interest Group’s work on inclusion in higher education.
