If you are a care leaver thinking about coming to University, or are already studying here at the University, the Health and wellbeing can offer you support and guidance on any welfare concerns you may have. The service is completely confidential and aims to be flexible and responsive to your needs.
If you are a care leaver in undergraduate study, you are eligible to access the £2,000 bursary that the University offers. To receive the bursary, you need to meet the following criteria:
The University will pay the bursary in instalments, typically, £500 in the first year, £750 in the second year and £750 in the final year.
Eligible care leaver students can apply for financial support through the University Hardship Fund which is non-repayable. Read more about the Hardship Fund.
