Disrupted Education Programme
The Widening Participation and Outreach team at the University of Liverpool has a well-established support programme for young people who have faced a Disrupted Education. We would like to engage with young people who have the potential to progress to university, but due to disruptions within their education, may face barriers when considering higher education.
We would like schools and colleges to identify and refer young people who are:
- Care Experienced
- Estranged from family
- Young Adult Carers
- Children of military families
- Asylum Seekers
- From Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities
- Have faced medical issues during their time at school/college.
The University of Liverpool can offer the following support to young people who have experienced a disruption to their education:
- Bespoke information and guidance from designated outreach staff to support transition to university
- Support with transport to enable participation in the University’s Open Days and Applicant Discovery Days on campus
- Financial support (eligibility criteria applies)*
- 365-day accommodation during your studies at Liverpool
- Opportunity to apply to work as a Student Advocate with the University’s Outreach team.
