Student parents

This information is for students with caring responsibilities for children. It lists the support available to help you plan your time and finances effectively.


If you have young children, arranging appropriate childcare may be a key issue in enabling you to fully participate in your course. Student Support Services have produced an information sheet called Looking for Childcare, Word icon which covers up to date information about childcare providers and vacancies. You will also find basic information about potential funding.

Financial support

Financial support and funding are also of concern for many students with children. That is why the Student Financial Support Service produce information for Students with Children which is aimed at full-time home undergraduates. For further information and advice on funding issues, including for postgraduate and part time students contact the Student Financial Support Service.
