The University of Exeter is committed to supported students that are care experienced. We offer support and guidance from pre application through to graduation.
During our admissions processes we recognise the impact that being in care can have on a student’s attainment. Applicants we define as being a care leaver or care experienced will qualify for contextual offer to that we publish as our typical offer.
The University of Exeter offers financial support to students that are care leavers in the form of a full tuition fee waiver for UK undergraduates and PGCE students and a Care Leavers’ Bursary up to the age of 25.
We also offer 365-day accommodation and a support meeting to discuss accommodation options and individual requirements.
We provide a travel bursary of a maximum of £150 to cover the costs of visiting the University whether to attend a Campus Tour, an interview, or an Offer Holder Visit Day.
All students that are either care leavers or care experienced will have access to a named contact who is able to provide information, advice, and support on all aspects of student life.
We set out our full provision for care-experienced young people on our care leaver website
