Resources for refugees

Updated Friday, 12th June 2020

To support refugees around the world, here are some free resources from The Open University.

Below is a list of resources which we hope will be of interest to asylum seekers and refugees who wish to discover free online courses from The Open University and other providers. These include free courses for learning English to information about working as a translator. We also provide links to some of the key refugee support organisations and useful resources. Many sources of support come and go and change so please note this is not a comprehensive list.
