The University of Bath provide a range of support to help care leaver applicants and students settle in to university. At our Open Days we can meet you to discuss the different support available, and you can speak to current students about their university experience. If you would rather visit the university at another time, we can also arrange this.

We offer guaranteed university accommodation for the duration of your course, as well as providing academic and wellbeing support within Student Services via a designated key adviser. Eligible students can also access a non-repayable care leaver/foyer bursary of £1,000 per academic year, plus £1,000 to help with start-up costs and a further £1,000 on graduation.

UK students who meet certain criteria may be eligible for a university bursary of £3,000 for each year of study (except paid placements), or for the Gold scholarship of £5,000 per year of study (except paid placements) Undergraduate scholarships, bursaries & other funding.

Our support for estranged students, begins before these students enter the University. We will ensure that these students have met and engaged with our dedicated support teams, and that they are aware of all the support on offer. This approach will then be  supported by individual meetings and a designated point of contact who supports them throughout their student journey. This approach is valued by our students and is helping to ensure that continuation and completion for these groups is high.

We will continue to ensure that relationships are developed as early as possible with estranged students, to ensure they can build relationships beyond the outreach teams with current students and key staff members at the University who would continue to support them post-enrolment. We will continue to work with charities and other third sector organisations who support students and student influencers to encourage estranged students to apply to HE.

We will continue to provide holistic financial interventions designed to support students financially while also providing them with opportunities to develop skills, connect with peers, and create networks.

Estranged students will be provided with a wide and diverse range of community groups, safe spaces and networks which allow them to feel part of a rich and vibrant community.  Students are then able to fully participate in all aspects of university life and not required to work excessive hours to financially sustain themselves at university.
