Care leavers: What support we offer, Leeds Conservatoire

At Leeds Conservatoire we recognise the challenges that young people face when they leave the care system and begin to live independently.

Your UCAS application 

Remember to tick the box on your UCAS application to let us know you have been in care. This is confidential and will not be assessed as part of your application. It does, however, let our student services team know that you might need financial or other support, and means that we can help you put that in place before you start your course.

Dedicated care leaver contact 

If you are a care leaver and want to talk to someone about the support we can offer, please contact Bethany Milner, Student Wellbeing Adviser (Access & Participation), at 

We also offer wellbeing support to students who are care leavers, including a mentor who can meet with you regularly to help you stay on track with your studies and anything else you might need support with. 

Campus tours 

We are happy to organise campus tours for care leavers and foster families. If you would like to arrange a student-led tour of our facilities you can book a campus tour online.
