Supporting the journey of students leaving care or care experienced.

Student Services - Two female students sat on a bed with laptops .

If you are a care leaver or care experienced student at the university, we have dedicated advisors who can help co-ordinate support for you with internal and external services, including social services.

We will try to make your transition to University as easy as possible and give advice on pre-application and guidance for offer holders. We can also offer support with accommodation all year round or support finding somewhere else for the whole year.

You can speak to us about any questions or queries you have about life at Lincoln, academic study and your general wellbeing.

The wellbeing team have been awarded the new Quality Mark set by NNECL (National Network for the Education of Care Leavers) by participating in a pilot study. This is a huge achievement for University of Lincoln to be one of the first Universities in the country to be awarded this. You can find out more here.
