First Humanitarian Scholarship students welcomed to our University


The University of Manchester has held an event to welcome the first recipients of its newly-created Humanitarian Scholarships for students fleeing conflict and persecution.

In response to the war in Ukraine, the University launched a new scheme earlier this year for international applicants who have been displaced because of armed conflict or are at risk of persecution or violence due to their race, religion, nationality, membership of a social group or political opinion.

The scholarships are intended for students who could not afford to study in Manchester without one, and are expected to cost the University around £5m to operate over three years.
