Excellence in Exile

MU is a University of Sanctuary welcoming refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants into our university community and fostering a culture of inclusion for all those seeking sanctuary. 

MU is an active member of the Universities of Sanctuary Ireland network. MU offers a number of Sanctuary Scholarships for students who are asylum seekers or refugees and who do not have access to state support for their studies. 

MU is very active in the Scholars at Risk (SAR)  network whose mission is to protect scholars and promote academic freedom.  The European Scholars at Risk  office is hosted at MU and we are active partners in the EU-funded InSPIREurope initiative to support researchers at risk. MU offers a SAR Fellowship for academics/research staff who are forced to flee their home country.
