For some students, their individual circumstances can have a significant impact on their decision to go to university or college – and on their experience when they are there.

To make sure all your students feel informed and prepared at each stage of their application journey, we’ve worked with expert organisations to bring together practical tips and useful resources for those who are advising students about their next step. 

In this guide, you will find practical information on how to support the following groups: 

  1. Disabled students (including long-term illnesses and learning differences) 
  2. Students with mental health conditions 
  3. Care-experienced students 
  4. Students estranged from their parents 
  5. Refugees and asylum seekers 
  6. Students with caring responsibilities 
  7. Students with parenting responsibilities 
  8. Children from UK Armed Forces families (Service children)
