Undergraduate study - 2024 entry

Edinburgh Cares

We offer a range of specific support to applicants and students with care-experience, estranged students, and student carers.

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

We welcome and actively support applications from people with caring responsibilities. If you are a student carer, you can expect a range of support from us both during the application process and throughout your time at the University.

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.
