The University of Westminster has long held a commitment to widening access to those from under-represented groups. We are working with a number of partners to provide bespoke support for care leavers or estranged students, including alleviating financial and personal barriers which may prevent their journey into or through higher education, and providing ongoing pastoral care through their studies. 

“I was so worried about accommodation. I didn’t know where I was going to live. Having my accommodation paid for has given me time to focus on my studies. Without it I would have had to work really hard to pay the rent as living in London is so expensive.”
