Earlier this year The Centre for Education & Youth, in collaboration with King’s College London, released a research report which aimed to explore the barriers to higher education access faced by young people who have insecure immigration status. The report is the first to examine the barriers that stand in the way of young people who have refugee status; are seeking asylum; have limited leave to remain or indefinite leave to remain; and are undocumented.
During this panel session the report authors were joined by young people who have experienced the barriers first-hand. The session focused on the scale of the issue, the impact of ‘being blocked’ and the action that is needed to ensure that young people are given the support needed.
