The Brunel Sanctuary scholarship is an extremely important step towards enabling people who have fled persecution and are seeking asylum in the UK to be given the opportunity to attend higher education. The scholarship was introduced in 2018 and is open to refugees who have received an offer to study on a full time Undergraduate course starting in September 2020.

Deadline : 31 March 2020 at 12am

1. Award details

The Brunel Sanctuary Scholarship is a full fee waiver available to full time students identified as ‘refugees’. As well as a full tuition fee waiver, successful applicants will receive free single occupancy accommodation in one of Brunel’s Halls of Residence’s in standard halls. 

The Scholarship will be paid once for each eligible level of study up to a maximum of four years for a full time Undergraduate course, including a Foundation year, (or for five years of a sandwich course, including a Foundation year). No payment will be made in the placement year of a sandwich course, applicants undertaking an unpaid placement will be considered for the unpaid placement bursary, or in the integrated Masters year of an Integrated Master’s programme because the final year of an Integrated Masters is already subject to a fee waiver. Scholarship winners will be entitled to free standard single accommodation in the Integrated Masters year.


  • A full tuition fee waiver per year of the chosen course.
  • Guaranteed allocated and paid for on campus standard room accommodation per year (there is no cash alternative for applicants living off-campus).

How many: 5 scholarships in total.

Application process: Applicants should apply for the scholarship by completing the application form by midnight on 31st March 2020. Applicants must submit evidence of immigration status with the scholarship application. We will not be able to consider incomplete applications.

Applicants will need to make an application, provide evidence and meet the following eligibility criteria to be considered for a Scholarship. The Scholarship Allocation Panel will then shortlist applicants based on their application and supporting evidence.

Short listed applicants will be invited to attend a short, informal interview to assess suitability. The interview will confirm students have considered how they are going to manage as a student and will allow Brunel representatives to explain scholarship conditions.

Students awarded the Sanctuary Scholarship will be required to remain in contact with the Widening Access Officer throughout the year by e-mail and via termly meetings. This is a requirement if the scholarship is to be retained.

If an applicant selects Brunel as their Insurance choice they will no longer be considered for the scholarship and will lose any provisional scholarship award that has been made to them.
