UEA is a Sanctuary University and as such we welcome and support applications from asylum seekers. There are a number of UEA Scholarships available and you can visit campus as part of the Including Me outreach programme. You can also find useful information on the University of Sanctuary’s webpage.

As an asylum seeker your immigration status may change during your application process or during your time at UEA. As your immigration sponsor, you must keep UEA up to date with your immigration status, both to ensure that you are able to start or continue your studies and, more importantly, to make sure that you are fully supported as your asylum claim progresses.  You can read more about the support UEA can provide in the Immigration Bail section of this page.

If your immigration status changes and you are currently applying, please keep in contact with the Admissions team and with Student Life International if you are a current student.
