We welcome applications from student carers and from those who have spent time in care. We will offer advice and guidance to help you through the application process, and we can provide support, including financial assistance, once you join the university.
Support for students with care experience
If you are a care leaver, or if you have a background in care, we will give you advice and guidance throughout the application process. We will also support you throughout your studies by providing financial assistance, year-round access to University accommodation and support to take part in activities outside of the classroom.
Support for student carers
If you are a student carer who provides unpaid care for a friend or family member, we will support you throughout the application process and while you are studying with us.
Support for estranged students
If you are estranged from your family, we can provide you with support before you apply to university and throughout your degree.
