Last chance to register for our Refugee Student Summit
NUS Scotland and the University of Strathclyde Students’ Association are hosting our inaugural Refugee Student Summit on Thursday 9 March, between 10.30am and 2.45pm, at the Collins Building of the University of Strathclyde.
Joined by over 50 delegates from Scotland’s colleges and universities including student refugees, student representatives, alongside education sector bodies and third sector organisations, you’ll have the opportunity to find out more about the current best practice to support refugees and asylum seekers studying in Scotland and to be part of a growing community working to address the barriers that refugee and asylum seeking students face.
At the start of the day, Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Principal of the University of Strathclyde, will share the work that the University has been doing to support refugee and asylum seeking students. This will be followed by a number of speakers, a panel discussion and an opportunity to explore in smaller groups some of the key points in a student’s journey through education. You can view the full agenda for the day here.
The event is free to attend but delegates are required to register. The registration deadline has now been extended and will close on Friday 3 March 2017 at 5pm, you can register here. Please also extend this invitation to others who may be interested in attending.
