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.

At the University of Gloucestershire we recognise that the transition into higher education is an enormous step for all new students, especially for those from a cared-for background. Therefore, prior to applying, we run a comprehensive outreach programme and prioritise looked-after children and care leavers when offering places on subject taster days and residentials. You can find out more about this offer here: www.glos.ac.uk/outreach.

We also provide one point of contact for you at the university to ensure that this process is as simple and supportive as possible, even before you start. We will use your Pathway Plan (if you have one), and work in partnership with your personal adviser to coordinate a range of support and educational services.

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

Our care leavers' scholarship consists of a 50% fee waiver, plus a bursary towards general living, accommodation and study costs. This can be received as discounted halls of residence fees or cash support at Levels 5 and 6, should you move into private accommodation.

The bursary amount is £2,000 in the first year (Level 4), £1,000 in the second year (Level 5), and £1,000 in the final year (Level 6). This amount can be increased to £2,000 in the final year (Level 6), if you have an average pass mark of 60% or more at Level 5.

Please check our website for details of the criteria for this bursary: www.glos.ac.uk/life/support/pages/care-leavers-advice.aspx.
