If you ticked the box on your UCAS application or indicated during online enrolment you’re a care leaver, we’ll contact you to confirm your eligibility for the bursary.
Similarly, if you indicated during online enrolment that you’re estranged from your parents we’ll contact you and ask you to set up a consent to share with Student Finance so we can confirm this.
Student Finance Information on Estrangement 2022/2023:
If you have not done so already you need to complete a Confirmation of Estrangement Form to confirm that you’re irreconcilably estranged from your parent(s). To be considered irreconcilably estranged from your parents, you won’t have had any written or verbal contact with either parent and this is unlikely to change. Usually, for a period of at least twelve months, but Student Finance will consider all cases.
