Asylum Seekers

The Widening Participation and Outreach team at the University of Liverpool has a well-established support programme for young people who have faced a Disrupted Education. We would like to engage with young people who have the potential to progress to university, but due to disruptions within their education, may face barriers when considering higher education.

The University of Liverpool can offer the following support to young people who have experienced a disruption to their education:

  • Bespoke information and guidance from designated outreach staff to support transition to university
  • Support with transport to enable participation in the University’s Open Days and Applicant Discovery Days on campus
