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.

At Birmingham City University, if you declare on your accommodation application that you are a care leaver, your application is prioritised.

As a care leaver, you also have the option to remain in university accommodation for the duration of your course, and can access 365-day accommodation.

Our student wellbeing adviser is able to offer you support, advice and/or information on physical, mental or emotional, social and spiritual-related issues, and is a point of contact for care leavers prior to starting university, and throughout your course.

Our student wellbeing adviser can also direct care leavers to relevant support such as professional, experienced advisers in student finance, disability/dyslexia support, visas and immigration, mental health, counselling and careers.
