Swansea University offers additional support for estranged students.  We have a support package which we hope will help you to settle in, focus on your studies and graduate successfully. 

How do I qualify?

To qualify for the support package, you need to:

  • Be aged 25 or under when you start the course
  • Be enrolled on an Undergraduate degree programme at Swansea University
  • Be estranged with no foreseen chance of reconciliation and have been recognised as having independent status on the basis of estrangement by your student finance provider for the purposes of receiving student funding at the independent student rate (you will need to provide a financial notification letter that confirms this)*
  • Have applied for all of the statutory student funding which you’re entitled to.

*Having worked with estranged students for many years we are aware that compiling evidence of this nature is problematic for some students. Money@CampusLife can provide advice regarding applying for student finance as an estranged student. Contact us for further guidance: money.campuslife@swansea.ac.uk.

If you are aged 25+ and your funding status changes from 'estranged' to 'independent' for the purposes of student finance, then please contact the Money@CampusLife office to discuss your ongoing eligibility for the estranged student bursary.

How do I access the package?

Contact us in the first instance, by emailing money.campuslife@swansea.ac.uk however, please be aware that Money@CampusLife office will need you to provide the estrangement confirmation letter from your funding provider in order to access the package. Once we are aware of your estrangement, one of our team will be in contact with you directly to discuss your circumstances and outline the support available.

We respect your confidentiality. The Money@CampusLife office are the only department that will contact you regarding your care background. This information will not be shared outside of the office unless you provide us with consent to do so.
