The Equal Access Network is an open, interactive and friendly forum where students from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds in the UK can connect and learn from each other’s experiences of higher education.
We want to build a sense of community, value and empowerment. The network is supported by STAR (Student Action for Refugees) and led by STAR Equal Access Activists who have experience of accessing university while claiming asylum or with a temporary immigration status.
