Care leavers support
We are committed to supporting students who are in formal out-of-home care (e.g. foster care, residential care, kinship care or being a ward of the state) to ensure that they receive the help they need to have a successful university experience.
We understand that the transition from out-of-home-care in to higher education can be challenging, so as well as receiving ongoing support while studying with us, we can also provide advice and guidance before students apply.
- setting up appointments to discuss support options available to students before they apply or accept their offers to study
- helping students to access the right support services while studying
- arranging a tour of our campus or a visit to UTS student accommodation.
If you would like more information about support available at UTS for students from a care background, call the Equity and Diversity Unit on +61 2 9514 1084.
