At Ulster University’s branch campuses we understand the needs of young people who may have lived in care as a child. If you are registered as a care leaver our Welfare Team understands that support and advice starts before the first day of teaching. Therefore we would encourage you to contact us as soon as you know you would like to study on one of our campuses. We have welfare staff based in both London and Birmingham campuses and we are very happy to offer you help and support before, during and at the end of your studies.

Some examples of how our staff are able to support students include:

  • Offering advice in a private 1:1 space if you have any questions or concerns
  • Helping you go through funding applications and additional paperwork
  • Explaining your rights and what you are entitled to as a care leaver
  • Meeting students personally during the induction process and guiding them through procedures
