Newcastle University of Sanctuary

We are very pleased that Newcastle University was awarded University of Sanctuary Status in June 2021. The University has been working towards this award for a number of years and as part of their commitment to this work has been able to offer opportunities for those seeking sanctuary to pursue their education through  Sanctuary Scholarships.

Newcastle University aims to provide a welcoming place of safety for all and has a long-standing commitment to offering educational, research and engagement opportunities to people fleeing violence and persecution.
