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.
Care leavers are an important part of our student body, and we endeavour to support you at every milestone throughout your academic journey with us.
A Student Wellbeing Officer will contact you before you start university in order to introduce you to our support services, and also send you a welcome pack which includes a schedule of events, offered specifically to make you feel at home.
You will be given priority wellbeing support, such as access to counselling services, and also priority consideration for hardship applications.
We wish you the best of luck with planning your future!
