The University of Cambridge has signed up to the the Care Leaver Covenant, which commits to the provision of support and opportunities for young people leaving the care system. We also have made commitments to estranged students. 

The University provides support for care-experienced students. At St Edmund’s, we offer 52 week room contracts and many of our students live here year-round throughout their studies. The University also offers the Cambridge Bursary and students aged 25 or over, or who are estranged, receive up to £6,600 each year. 

If you are such a student, do have a look at the University guidance and do get in touch – we would be very happy to set up a video call to discuss your options.
