Care leavers

As a care leaver you may have concerns about studying at university - both on a personal and financial level. We can offer you support throughout your academic journey.

One of our dedicated Support Co-ordinators, specifically trained to work with care leavers and vulnerable adults, will meet you before the academic year begins to discuss any concerns or worries that you may have and answer any questions. You will also be able to access ongoing support throughout your studies. If you would like to know more, please get in touch at or see our Care leavers webpage.

Some of our students, along with Aimhigher and the Frank Buttle Trust, have created an inspirational film with the support of Fixers UK - a group of young people aged 16-25 who work together to broadcast a huge range of issues including Care Leavers in Higher Education. In the film some of our care leaver students share their experience at the University.

Financial support for care leavers

Visit our fees and finance webpages to see if you are eligible for a care leavers’ bursary. For more information you can download the 'Student Finance Matters' care leaver factsheet.
