The University of Leicester is celebrating the contribution of refugees and asylum seekers through a week long programme of events during Refugee Week.

The University is working towards becoming a University of Sanctuary and is already working with refugees and asylum seekers, providing language classes and opening up other opportunities for participation in higher education.

During Refugee Week, which begins on June 18, the University will:

  • Provide information for those hoping to apply to University in the future
  • Highlight information about volunteering opportunities with refugees and asylum seekers
  • Take part in a visit to a City of Sanctuary drop in
  • Provide talks about what it is like to be a refugee or asylum seeker in Europe
  • Have a film show about the experience of three Zimbabwean refugees and their lives in Leicester
  • Launch our Sanctuary Scholarship
