Stand Alone Pledge

The Stand Alone Pledge is aimed at students studying without family support. It raises awareness of the support available for them across our 13 member institutions including whether they have named contacts, dedicated web-pages, and additional financial support.

This year’s document has been updated to include a number of new features that are designed to make it even more informative and user friendly. This follows input from our members, as we seek to continually improve estranged students’ access to information on their entitlement to support in HE.

This year we have revised the support categories that our members offer to estranged students, with new check-boxes for support with graduation costs and whether the HE provider acts as a rent guarantor.

In addition, the document now includes a glossary of HE terms, quotes from estranged young people, and a refreshed list of top tips to help individuals on their HE journey. The design has also been overhauled to make it clearer and even more accessible.
