Welcome - prospective students

Deciding to go to university is a big step. At UoN we want your university experience to be a positive one. If you are care experienced we would like to offer you extra support from the time of your application through to the completion of your studies. The support we offer is optional and you can decide how much you need at any stage and be assured that you will be treated with confidentiality and sensitivity, as we recognise that you may wish to leave the ‘care’ label behind. We are fully committed to welcoming those with care experience into Higher Education and would encourage you to contact us at the earliest opportunity.


What you need to know

Support offered

It is most important that you tick the 'in care' box on your UCAS application to inform us that you have been in care for 3 months or more. We will confirm your eligibility, but do not need full details of your circumstances.

Once you have been offered a place with us, we will write to you offering you a Pre- Entry meeting at the university to ensure that you have the relevant support.

All aspects of the support package are optional and you are welcome to take up the whole package or any part of it which may be useful to you. 

To find out what types of support may be available to you, please visit our Care leavers page for more information.
