Information and personal journeys
Useful resources, additional information and what some of our students have said.
The University can offer:
Kirsty Dorward, Head of Student Experience Projects, is our named contact for care leavers or students who find themselves estranged from their family and will be able to provide ongoing support, advice and guidance throughout your student journey, from making an application to Wolverhampton through to graduation.
Kirsty can also provide a link between the University, your local authority and/or your Care Leaving Team.
Finance advice to help you apply for all you are entitled to and work out a budget to suit your needs.
For general budgeting advice have a look at our Funding and budgeting webpage. It has a lot of tips and links to free online budget planners
