University of Loughborough

At Loughborough University, we are passionate about encouraging and supporting students from care background to progress and realise their full potential at University.

For students from care looking to progress to Loughborough, we offer personal statement advice and guidance through our Schools and College Liaison Team (wp@lboro.ac.uk ), as well as funding to support with both open day and interview travel costs.

Upon successful application to Loughborough, a named contact will support applicants through the next steps, including accommodation options (guaranteed, 52-week accommodation is available to all students from care), as well as information on the student finance packages available.

Loughborough offers a generous care leaver bursary on top of the financial support available through Student Finance. This includes a tuition fee waiver of £3,000 and a bursary of £2,700 available to students from foundation, all the way through to master’s level study.
