URGENT: Can a refugee get funding?Watch
Is an 18yr old with refugee status who came to the UK in Nov 2018 eligible for funding for Undergrad. Dentistry degree, please? Need urgent advice before submitting UCAS form today!
Our guidance states:
"If the student holds Refugee status or is the family member of a Refugee, they do not need to have been ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom in the 3 years preceding the first day of the first academic year of their course. Therefore, we would not ask these students for further evidence of their status or residency during this 3 year period.
They will be eligible for support if they fall under any of the following categories:
A student that has been granted refugee status in their own right; or
A spouse or civil partner of a refugee; or
A child or step-child of a refugee.
The student will also need to have been ordinarily resident in England on the first day of the first academic year of their course"
