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.

We pride ourselves in the support we provide our care leavers, and this consists of the following:

  • priority access for university accommodation up to 52 weeks per year, and this includes (if required) a four-week extension to your housing contract after graduation whilst you find somewhere to live
  • a care leavers' grant of £1,000 per year of study, which is non- refundable
  • help and support with childcare at the university nursery
  • access to counselling, disability services and career development services offering career guidance, CV building and employment assistance
  • a dedicated member of staff to provide additional help and support as and when you need it
  • confidential one-to-one financial support, advice and guidance.

We will provide the following financial support to help you stay on track during your studies.

You will be assessed for the ABB scholarship – which amounts to £2,000 in year one, and £1,500 in subsequent years if you achieve over 60% in your studies.

If your income is assessed as being under £30,000 a year, you will get a £500 bursary each year, and will be eligible for the care leavers' grant of £1,000 a year.

You will be automatically assessed for the ABB scholarship. If you are on a NHS-funded course, you would only get the care leavers' grant.

You can also apply to our hardship fund should you need it, and would be considered a priority.
