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.

UWE Bristol actively welcomes applications from care leavers.

We understand that going to university is harder if you have little or no family support, so our UWE Cares package of support is there to help. We’re committed to providing you with extra support to help you succeed on your course – from application to graduation. Drop us an email at UWECares@uwe.ac.uk if you have questions about anything to do with coming to university. We’re here to help and support you.

There is lots of support on offer for care leavers at UWE Bristol, including a designated point of contact for queries and concerns, information drop-ins and monthly newsletters to help you access information and support, a PAL Student Mentor to help you settle in during your first year, meet people and gain confidence and employment skills, and regular social events throughout the year.

We offer a bursary, accommodation 365 days a year, and a designated career coach to help you reach your goals. We're really nice and want to help you, so please email us with any queries.
