Estranged students are currently a priority group for our financial assistance fund and would be eligible for our UCL Undergraduate bursary. We have a Student Funding Welfare team to offer specialist advice and guidance on finance and budgeting, and we look to develop a bespoke bursary for estranged students.


We have up to 5 places on the Unite Foundation Scholarship programme which offers care leavers and estranged students’ free year-round accommodation for the duration their degree programme. Estranged students are also considered for the accommodation bursary which offers financial support to students residing in UCL owned accommodation.

Mental Health

Our named contact can receive any query and signpost estranged students to the most appropriate service or person, reducing the stress of searching themselves. We plan to improve the visibility and accessibility of our psychological services, and encourage the continual use of our first year ‘transition’ mentoring scheme.


The Widening Participation team prioritises estranged students for all their events and activities, and have a named point of contact for pre-application advice and guidance. We look to add relevant information for estranged students to our presentations, website and literature.
