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 understand that most new students may feel a bit uneasy or overwhelmed when they first arrive at university, regardless of their background.

To support your transition to university, we have put in place a range of support services to specifically address the needs of care leavers.

Our halls of residence rooms are usually leased only for the academic year, but for care leavers we may extend the lease to 52 weeks, to include the summer vacation. We can also help with finding long-term private sector accommodation during years two and three.

Support we offer

?
  • A named contact
  • Outreach sessions or activities
  • Pre-application help
  • Guidance for offer holders
  • A web page for care leavers
  • Careers advice and support after graduation

Accommodation we offer

?
  • A place to live all year round
  • If not, help finding somewhere to live for the whole year

Funding support we offer

?
  • Specific funding that's just for care leavers
  • Additional funding available (such as bursaries and grants)
  • Support for students seeking asylum
  • Support for those with discretionary leave to remain
  • Financial advice

Please note that the full eligibility criteria and payment details have yet to be fully confirmed for our care leaver/foyer award, and therefore the information below may be subject to change.​

The University of Northampton offers a non means-tested award to care leavers and students from foyers, to help towards your living costs over the summer break.

To be eligible for a care leaver/foyer award you must meet certain criteria:

  • you are under the age of 25 on the first day of the first academic year of your course  this will be 1 September for courses starting in the autumn term

  • you have been in care, or under a care order, for a period of at least 13 weeks since the age of 14, or you are from a foyer  you must provide a supporting letter from your local authority, support worker or the Foyer Federation that confirms your circumstances
