The transition into higher education can be daunting for anyone, but being a care leaver can present its own set of challenges. Rest assured, there’s lots of support you can access here at Aston University to support your journey into university and beyond.
Support for Care Leavers
We're committed to providing support and advice throughout your university journey via the
- Student Advice Team at The Hub. We have a range of different ways to support you should you need it whilst studying with us. This could include finance, accommodation, and other support services.
- You might also be eligible for the Aston Support Scholarship or Moving On grant.
If you apply to Aston and indicate you have experience of being in care on your UCAS form, our team will contact you outlining the support that is available to you.
When making your application to any university, we strongly recommend that you tick the box on your UCAS application. This will help identify you to the relevant staff who will then send you information about the support they can offer.
