General Information

Lancaster University currently provides a package of Care Leavers support including a Support Officer, 365 day accommodation and financial advice. We recognise that many Care Leavers may commence University with more financial worries than other students. 

Lancaster University has a bursary to support students whom are Care Leavers. To qualify you must be under 25 on the first day of the first academic year of the course and have supporting evidence that indicates you have been in care for a period of at least three months since the age of 14. Evidence should be from a Local Authority, Social Worker or other professional body.

Please see Support for Care Leavers and Care Experienced students for further information and details on Lancaster's support package.

Please see Care Leavers Visit Day for pre-arrival information for entry in 2019

You may also be eligible for support if you are a young person who has been made homeless and placed in supported accommodation by your Local Authority.

Please see Support for Care Leavers for further information on government support.
