Greenwich Refugee Student Bursary – University of Greenwich

Our story


At the University of Greenwich, we believe in creating a community that is inclusive, collaborative, and impactful. We are committed to providing opportunities for everyone to succeed, regardless of their background or circumstances. That’s why we’re launching this campaign to support refugee students who are studying at our university.

Many refugees face significant financial challenges when they arrive in the UK, and the cost of living in London can be particularly high. This can make it difficult for them to afford the basic necessities they need to succeed in their studies, such as accommodation, food, and transport.

To help address this issue, we are seeking to raise funds to provide additional bursaries of £250 for living expenses to refugee students at the University of Greenwich.

We believe that education is a powerful tool for change, and we are committed to ensuring that all our students, regardless of their background, have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Your support will help us to achieve this goal and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our refugee students.

Please donate today and help us to create a brighter future for refugee students at the University of Greenwich. Thank you for your support.


Donations are applied to…


`The theme for refugee week 2023 is all about showing compassion and making the UK a more welcoming place. Unfortunately, due to rising costs and discrimination, refugees can feel like outsiders with nowhere to turn. With the price of food, travel and household bills increasing so much over the past year, students are struggling more than ever.

Though the University of Greenwich do all we can to support our students through advice and guidance, we are looking for further help in order to provide bursaries for our students who are refugees.


Your donation will help reduce the stigma around refugees


We understand that due to the stigma associated with being a refugee, many students may not feel comfortable sharing their stories and experiences openly. To address this, we have made it possible for students to provide anonymous testimonials, so that their voices can be heard without fear of discrimination.

Additionally, we are actively working to reduce the stigma around refugees by organizing events such as Refugee Week, which creates a safe and welcoming environment for students to come forward and share their experiences with the wider community. Through these efforts, we hope to build a more inclusive and collaborative community that values the contributions of all its members, regardless of their backgrounds.


Why are donations necessary?


You will be contributing to a more inclusive and diverse community, where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.

Your donation will help to support:

  • Refugee students with their increased living expenses.
  • Alleviate other financial pressures for students so they can focus on their studies and succeed academically.
  • Help make a positive impact on the lives of refugee students at the University of Greenwich

We’re aiming to provide 8 bursaries which will demonstrate our commitment to supporting refugee students and create a more equitable and just society.

No student should have to worry about financial expenses when studying and experiencing what should be a life-changing University experience.
