Russell Group member Bristol University has offered scholarships and softened the application process for refugees and asylum seekers as part of a scheme to integrate those escaping conflict into education.

Professor Hugh Brady, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bristol, said: “We know there are factors that make it difficult for people from refugee and asylum-seeking communities to apply to university.

“Their previous studies may have been interrupted, they might not have evidence of their previous qualifications or their qualifications are not transferable.

“Our scheme has been designed to accommodate these factors, so please don’t let them stop you from applying.”

It comes as many working class students are put off the idea of going to university due to the huge debts incurred – with many leaving higher education after taking on more £40,000 of debt.

For six out of 10, cost is the main thing stopping them from going to university or dropping out when they get there, according to new research from NotGoingToUni.co.uk.
