The Council for At-Risk Academics

Cara (the UK-based Council for Academics at Risk) provides urgently-needed help to academics in immediate danger, those forced into exile, and many who choose to work on in their home countries despite serious risks. Cara also supports higher education institutions whose work is at risk or compromised.

Cara is currently supporting two Ukrainian scientists as research fellows at the Open University.

Open University Support

The Open University has launched a raft of measures aimed at helping students and Ukrainians fleeing the war and arriving in the UK.
These include financial support and assistance for existing OU students, a funding lifeline to potential students from Ukraine now living in the UK, as well as free online learning and partnerships with wider support networks. For more information click here .

A free course is available for people supporting Ukrainians.

Prospective students from Ukraine wishing to join our Postgraduate Programme should contact us for further information and assistance.
