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 can offer information, advice and guidance before you make an application to help with your decision-making process, as it is important that you make informed choices.
We organise specific events, and can help you with information on issues such as your UCAS application and student funding. Vicki Russell (email@example.com) works in our schools and colleges liaison service, and can be contacted by email with any queries you may have before you make your application.
Once you have made your UCAS application, Karen Smales (firstname.lastname@example.org) will contact you. She will be able to answer your questions, provide information, and help with any issues you may have.
Karen is also able to support you throughout your studies, to help you get the most out of your time here and achieve success. This can include help and support with personal issues, as well as university-related matters.

The University of Hull offers a care leavers' grant, which is worth £2,000 per year. If you have experience of care, but do not meet the criteria for the grant, we can make you a discretionary grant payment.
You should ensure that you indicate on your UCAS application that you have experienced care, and we will contact you with further information.
The university also administers a hardship fund, which can be applied for by registered students who are experiencing financial difficulties.
