Increasing Access to Higher Education for Migrants

Open Forum & Lunchtime Showcase, 25th Jan 2024

A collaboration between MESH, Migration Yorkshire and Yorkshire and Humber NATECLA. Our focus is on the challenges faced by migrant groups in gaining access to and experiencing Higher Education in the UK. Some of these challenges are about English language, some about visa restrictions and immigration control, some about qualification equivalence, some about funding.  The list is long and complex.  This online forum provides an opportunity to hear from and raise issues with a range of experts from the Higher Education sector, including academics and access specialists from the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield, and those with personal experience of facing these challenges.
