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): www.bath.ac.uk/campaigns/bursaries-and-scholarships-for-undergraduate-students/.
Further information about all the support offered is available on our website.
