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 previously held the Buttle UK Quality Mark, and now have our dedicated Corporate Parenting Action Plan that details all of the support available for our care-experienced applicants and students.

We have a dedicated team of student and advice support staff, who are involved with monitoring the attendance and progress of our care-experienced students and providing regular contact and support.

  • 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

We fast track all of the bursary applications for our care-experienced applicants/students.

We support students seeking asylum in the UK, and those with discretionary leave to remain in the UK, with fee allocations, determined by the rules and guidelines regarding the funding process.
