We also like to recognise and celebrate your success when you graduate, and will provide additional financial support to cover the costs of your gown hire, graduation photo and a ticket to the graduation ball.

This is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students (first year of postgraduate study only). Further information can be found at: www.southampton.ac.uk/studentservices/support-and-wellbeing/care-leavers.page.

If you indicated on your UCAS application that you are a care leaver, we will contact you once you have enrolled to advise you how to claim your bursary. If you didn't include this information on your application, or believe you are eligible and don't hear from a member of our Student Inclusion Team by November, then please contact David Munn on: studentinclusion@soton.ac.uk. If you are leaving care and are classed as independent by Student Finance England, you could also be entitled to an additional annual bursary of £2,000 during your undergraduate studies.
