Universities of Sanctuary Award courses

Helping you to create a welcoming space for everyone.

Scottish Refugee Council has partnered with City of Sanctuary on their Universities of Sanctuary stream initiative to develop a suite of courses to support Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who are inspired to go for the University of Sanctuary Award. Through our online courses, we consider ways of reducing the myriad of barriers to Higher Education for people from a forced migration background. We hope to inspire and support universities to develop a culture and a practice of welcome within their own institutions, in their wider communities, and across the Higher Education sector in the UK. We have scoured legislation, policy and guidance to bring you all you need to know to create and strengthen strategies and plans, make informed policy decisions, and improve procedures and practice.

We deliver all our training online now so we can reach you wherever you are.  Look at the range of courses below and book on. You will join others who are facing the same challenges as you and you can learn together.  Or if you would like to commission a course, have a chat with our training officer Martha Harding who is happy to work with you to provide off the shelf, tailored or bespoke training that suits your institution's needs.  Email us at train@scottishrefugeecouncil.org.uk to find out more or arrange an online meeting to have a chat about your needs.
