The education and liaison outreach team is committed to ensuring those leaving care are supported in their application to higher education, and throughout their time at university. The university works to ensure that all its aspiration-raising activities are accessible for those in care, and works closely with local universities as part of the Southern Universities' Network.

The University of Portsmouth provides all care leavers with a personal support finance adviser, who is on hand to provide support and guidance on personal funding needs.
