Universities have the discretion to recognise asylum seekers as home students. This has been done at Manchester, Leeds and Queen Mary. At Sussex however this is not currently the case, meaning asylum seekers and those granted discretionary leave to remain in the UK are charged international student fees, offered no specific additional funding and are not classified as a priority group for any existing support.
To make an impact on those involved in these financial decisions, we need to show that this is a matter that students at Sussex care about.
