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.

Nottingham Trent University offers a range of pre-entry and on-course support for care-experienced young people.

Student support officers can provide support and advice on a wide range of issues at any point during your studies. This support can also include signposting or referral to other specialist services where appropriate.

If you have accepted a firm offer, and indicated time in care on your UCAS application, we will contact you directly with further information about the support we provide - and offer you the opportunity to arrange a meeting with a student support officer prior to enrolment, if this would be welcomed.

Nottingham Trent University works collaboratively with the University of Nottingham on the Growing Lives Project, which specialises in bespoke outreach activities and events for looked-after young people and care leavers.

To access opportunities such as application advice, campus visits and workshops to help support you with your transition to higher education, please contact Lucy Judd via e-mail: lucy.judd@ntu.ac.uk.

An annual care professionals training event is also available for practitioners free of charge.

Nottingham Trent University will be awarding a care leaver bursary of £500 to eligible full-time UK home undergraduates who start their studies in 2017. The £500 cash award to supplement living costs will be paid to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Have been in the care of a local authority in the UK (or have been looked after by relatives who have a court order to look after them in the UK) at some point since the age of 16.
  • Are under 25 on 1 Sept 2017.
  • Are enrolled on a full-time undergraduate degree or foundation degree course.

The care leaver bursary will be available for each year of full-time study. During the summer, we will contact all students who have indicated on their UCAS form that they have spent some time in care, to advise you of the application process.

If you feel that you are eligible for a care leaver bursary, but did not indicate on your UCAS form that you have spent time in care, please contact us directly by e-mail and we will ensure that the application information is sent out to you.

We will also be awarding two Article 26 Scholarships for undergraduate entry in September 2018 for new students who have sought asylum in the UK but do not have access to student finance from the UK government. Scholarship recipients will each be awarded a full tuition fee waiver and a £500 award towards course and travel costs for each year of their academic course.
