Going to University is a fantastic experience and great way to develop you knowledge, skills and experience. Being organised financially will be extremely important and the Leaving Care Team helps to support in this area as best as possible. This includes financial support in the following areas:
- 52 weeks of the year accommodation (within a budget)
- £2000 bursary over the period of your course
- £75 books allowance per year
Speak with you PA for lots more information.
Also, many Universities provide additional funding streams for Care Leavers. Your PA can find out more details about the University of your choice.
