Estranged students who are undertaking their first undergraduate course are automatically eligible for a £1,000 grant. Estranged students are a priority group for our Access to Learning Fund (hardship fund for home students) and may be eligible for additional financial support. Additional financial support may be available through the University of London Scholars Programme.


Estranged students studying an undergraduate course are given priority for housing in the St George’s Horton Halls of Residence and are eligible for year-round 365-day accommodation contracts if required. Estranged students who become homeless are prioritised for emergency accommodation.

Mental Health and Student Support

Estranged students have a named contact at St George’s who can support with coordinating financial and pastoral support. The University’s Counselling Service provides a non-judgemental, confidential setting in which to work things through in your own way. It is free of charge and available to all St George’s undergraduate and postgraduate students. All students are assigned a personal tutor who can provide academic advice and support.


Flexible and personalised campus visits for prospective estranged students. Estranged students are a priority target group for widening participation activities. We have a contextual admissions scheme which is designed to support eligible students, including those who are estranged, to enter the university. It offers an alternative grade offer as well as access to pre-application and post-application support. Prior to enrolment there is an opportunity to speak to a current student about any concerns students may have.
