COMPAS’ work in relation to education has specialised on access and entitlements to further and higher education and the implications of funding restrictions on migrants. More recent work included an impact project aimed at students in schools, building on testimonies collected through a research project on undocumented migrant children. Currently under the GEMS initiative, COMPAS researchers are working with senior European city officials on knowledge exchange around engaging migrant parents in education.
