If you are leaving care or have previously spent time in care for three months or more and are thinking of applying to the University, there is a range of services and provision that the University can offer you.
For example, we may be able to provide financial support, year-round accommodation and or advice and guidance from our dedicated advisor.
Those full-time undergraduate students who meet the criterion are eligible for £1000 Care Leavers Bursary per year whilst studying at Ulster.
In 2018/19 Ulster University supported 100+ students who have experienced care in one of the following ways:
- Annual bursary payments while studying full time at the University
- Summer residential for young people aged 14-17 yrs.
- Fostering Aspirations - a successful program in partnership with Fostering Network NI (now in its 10th year).
If you would like further information please contact us through FlexEd@ulster.ac.uk requesting an email or phone number for the Community Outreach Officer.
All enquiries are treated confidentially.
We look forward to hearing from you.
