How can universities support refugees and displaced people?
- There are more than 65 million displaced people in the world: almost 1% of the global population (UNHCR)
- 61% of these are under 26 - almost 40 million young people who are likely to be missing out on education at all levels
- Only 1% of displaced people are in higher education. This loss of individual opportunity and human potential is immense
How can UK universities help address a problem of this scale?
This report sets out the steps universities are taking to support the needs of displaced learners. It also suggests ways in which they can further enhance their impact working with and for displaced communities.
It draws together existing advice and guidance, and highlights good practice that can be used to inform the development of new strategic approaches to the challenge of access to higher education for displaced learners.
