Students without family support

Are you a care leaver, care experienced, estranged, or have experience of supported foyer accommodation? If so, there is a great deal of support available to you within Edge Hill University.

The Student Support team are the designated team for supporting care leaver, care experienced and estranged students. We recognise that starting a course at university and moving to a new place can be exciting, but also overwhelming. You may find you have a maze of information and procedures to deal with, that’s why the Student Support Team are committed to offering you the extra support you might need throughout your studies.
