Refugee and asylum seeker students and academics
We are proudly positioned at the heart of the city of Sheffield, the original City of Sanctuary for refugees and asylum seekers. We recognise the contribution of asylum-seekers and refugees to the City of Sheffield. We welcome refugee/asylum seeker students and refugee academics in the university community of learners and support them to thrive.

Support for the refugee and asylum seeker community in Sheffield
A group of social work and community students have put everything they've learned into practice – by travelling to Calais and Dunkirk to help displaced migrants.
In the summer of 2016, Hassun worked as a teacher in a school set up by volunteers at the under-resourced and overpopulated Calais migrant camp.
