Start Up Bursaries of £1,000 are available to those students (aged under 25) entering the University from care, estranged from their families or those who were homeless immediately prior to starting their studies.
The start-up bursaries are intended to cover course related costs such as books, equipment, travel and study aids. These are one-off, non-repayable bursaries which will be paid in the first year only.
There is a named contact person for Care Experienced and Estranged students within the University’s Student Services & Administration, and that is the person you should turn to for help and advice at any stage of your journey into and through Higher Education. Contact Wendy Williams, Student Adviser in Student Services & Administration. Wendy can give you more details on all aspects of the University’s support provision – both prior to admission and whilst studying here.
