Our new research report ‘Higher Education on Hold’, in collaboration with King’s College London, explores the barriers to higher education access faced by young people who have insecure immigration status. The report is the first to examine the barriers to accessing HE that that stand in the way of young people who: Have refugee status Are seeking asylum Have limited leave to remain or indefinite leave to remain Are undocumented Our new research finds that many young people who have completed most of their schooling in the UK are ineligible for student finance, and have to pay international fees of up to £30,000 per year. This forces many to give up, or delay their journey to higher education.
