    Abstract

    This report examines the barriers and challenges faced by refugee background students transitioning from Australian secondary schools to university. As part of a larger Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) funded cross-institutional study between University of Western Sydney (UWS), Charles Sturt University (CSU), and University of Canberra (UC), it focuses on three main educational regions - Greater Western Sydney (GWS); Wagga Wagga and Albury (regional NSW); and Canberra (ACT). The three regions were chosen specifically for their demonstrated experience in providing targeted programs for refugee students, their significant refugee support programs with schools in the local area and their unique refugee populations.
