Firstly, you need to state on your UCAS form that you have been in care.
Once you have confirmed that you wish to take up your place at Brighton, we will send you a short form that you will need to complete and return. This is so that we can check what support you are eligible to receive.
Don’t worry if you haven’t indicated on your UCAS form that you have been in care or you have difficulty completing the form for any reason – you can still get additional support if you are eligible. Wendy Heasmer, the contact for care leavers applying to or joining the university is here to help. Call Wendy on 01273 644605 or email W.Heasmer@brighton.ac.uk.
What happens next?
If you are eligible, and confirm that you would like additional support, your details will be passed (with your permission) to relevant departments such as the accommodation office, finance department and student services. These departments will assess your support needs and help with any queries you may have.
