Nominated advisers can provide tailored information and guidance to students who have been looked after by a local authority during childhood - Find out more.
Students with caring responsibilities have dedicated advisers who provide practical advice and supported referrals to university services and external organisations.
We also organise events during term time.
Being 'estranged' means you're not on good terms with and have no contact with your family. We understand that coming to university without the support of a family can be particularly stressful. Speak to our dedicated advisers for guidance and support. Find out more.
You are also eligible to apply for additional financial help.
