We understand that making the decision to go to university can be difficult regardless of your circumstances, but if you're leaving care the process can seem even more daunting. We're committed to supporting young people in care and care leavers to enter and succeed in higher education, and offer a range of support to make your transition to university life easier.
BU has been awarded the Buttle UK Quality Mark, an award that recognises our commitment to supporting young people with care experience to progress to and succeed in higher education.
There are a number of external organisations that can provide you with further support, such as the Care Leavers' Association. They provide information about accessing further and higher education. The Who Cares? Trust also offers a range of information about entering higher education after leaving care.
