The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

The University of Exeter is committed to supporting young people in care and care leavers to realise their full potential through higher education study. The University of Exeter sets out its commitment to care-experienced children as described on our website:

www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduate/life/careleavers

We are delighted to have been holders of the Buttle Quality Mark for Care Leavers from 2011-2014 and we continue to work with young people, carers, foster families, social services, virtual schools and other organisations to support progression to the university.

The University of Exeter also provides:

  • full fee waiver for UK undergraduates and PGCE students
  • a designated contact for care leaver applicants
  • 365-day accommodation should this be required

The University of Exeter offers financial support to students who have been in care in the form of a full fee waiver for UK undergraduates and PGCE students, and a care leaver's bursary. You may also be eligible for the Access to Exeter bursary.

Fee waiver
Care leavers starting undergraduate or PGCE courses at the University of Exeter will not have to pay tuition fees. If you have identified yourself as someone who has been in care in your UCAS application, the University of Exeter will contact you asking for further information.

Care leaver's bursary
The bursary is intended to help with the cost of accommodation during the summer vacation period after your first and subsequent years of study (but not final year). The bursary amount is not fixed, but is decided by taking into account the additional cost of your accommodation needs.

Access to Exeter bursary
UK students who meet certain criteria may be eligible for the Access to Exeter bursary of £2,000 for the first year of your studies and £1,500 from the second year onwards for the duration of your undergraduate studies.

For more information, please contact outreach@exeter.ac.uk

We work with the Unite Foundation to offer 365 days of free accommodation to selected students, the deadline for applications is 1 June 2017 and you can find out more about this at: http://www.unitefoundation.co.uk/
