Supporting Looked After Children and Care Leavers in Higher Education

Find out more about how we support Looked After Children and Care Experienced students during their transition to, and throughout their time at university. Register for our upcoming webinar taking place on Tuesday 28 July, 3pm. 
This live webinar, jointly hosted by the Student Recruitment and Widening Participation team and the Advice and Counselling Service, aims to inform supporters of Looked after Children and Care Leavers about how Queen Mary University of London supports the access, success, and progression of the young people in these cohorts.
 
We will include information on the application process for care leavers, accommodation, finance and funding, and support with transition to university. We will also cover the support mechanisms in place for care experienced and estranged students once they enrol as a student with us, and throughout their time at Queen Mary. 
 
There will be opportunities to ask questions and we would welcome insight from your experiences of working with care experienced young people, in order to inform best practice.
