Care Leavers

Support for Care Leavers

We are committed to supporting students who are care leavers.

As well as receiving ongoing support while studying at Newcastle, the University can provide advice and guidance before you apply on all topics relating to higher education.

Support can include:

  • appointments to discuss the support options available to you before you apply or accept an offer
  • access to the range of support services offered by the University
  • someone to speak to if there is anything you are unsure about
  • a visit to University accommodation and/or a campus tour of the University
  • meeting a current University student
