Care Leavers

The University of South Wales is committed to providing support for students from care and those leaving care who want to go on to higher education.

We at the University of South Wales can help you at every stage of your university experience, with specialist help and advice before, during and after you are a student with us – leaving you to concentrate on your studies and enjoy university life.

We can support you with finding accommodation, financial support, money management, part time work and academic enquires.

Feedback received from our new and continuing students:

  • "The support I have been given from student services and the Care Leaver Coordinator throughout applying has been exceptional and I encourage everyone to access the support that is available"
  • "Thank you for all your help, I feel we worked well together to get me where I want to be"
  • "I found that they were always there when I needed assistance or support with anything"
  • "I believe the care leaver team are very friendly and the Care Leaver coordinator was very helpful and I felt I could trust her which I found very important as it meant I could talk to her about many difficulties I was facing without feeling judged."
