About Maryhill Integration Network
In 2022 Maryhill Integration Network (MIN) and JustRight Scotland (JRS) highlighted that many students in Scotland were being excluded from accessing higher education due to their immigration status. These students were from families who came to Scotland as refugees, yet despite settling and studying here, were treated the same as international students, subject to much higher fees to further their studies. This unfair system was the focus of the #OurGradesNotVisas campaign which led to changes within Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) regulations allowing more students to access funding and creating more equitable treatment for students in Scotland from refugee backgrounds.
