The University of East Anglia encourages young people with experience of living in care to attend our outreach and enrichment events. We offer individual visits, group events, activities offering insight into specific academic subjects, and residential events over the summer months. We can cover your transport costs to UEA through our student Travel Fund, to ensure your journey will not be a barrier to attending an event. Please get in touch with Liz Ferguson within the university’s Outreach team to find out more about any of the above.
For information about taster visits, residential events and other pre-university outreach and enrichment activities contact Liz Ferguson, Outreach Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01603 591960.
UEA’s undergraduate care leaver students can access a dedicated bursary for up to four years of study. Visit our Fees & Funding page at www.uea.ac.uk/finance for full details of the bursary and eligibility criteria.
