Swansea University offers a package of support for Care Leavers which aims to support young people who have been in care and wish to come to University. A Care Leaver is a person who has been looked after for at least 13 weeks since the age of 14, and who was in care on their 16th birthday.
The comprehensive package of support includes help with UCAS and student funding applications, help in attending Open Days, a bursary of £1000 for each year you study (undergraduate level only, please see our website for further information on the postgraduate bursary) and a named contact to assist with any queries that arise during your studies.
