Sydney University backs Refugee Language Program

The Refugee Language Program has been an important support for refugees and asylum seekers for two decades, and remains as vital as ever – we will continue to support it, in line with our institutional commitment to leadership for good (Language service offers a lifeline – but for how long? June 7, 2022).

Originally funded by the University, over the last decade it has been supported through donations for which we are very grateful. In the last couple of years, we’ve seen our donor support shift towards other University projects such as student bursaries, while the Program’s costs have also risen significantly.

This year our Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences will fill the Program’s funding gap, and is working with the program team to develop a strategy and operating model that will ensure it is sustainable into the future, with funding from a mix of sources.
