As a care leaver, we would prioritise an application from you to the discretionary (formerly hardship) fund. This means that you could receive extra help, on top of your student funding, with the cost of accommodation, travel and childcare.
We also offer a number of care-experienced bursaries via our partnership with The Robertson Trust.
