How is information about care experience used?

Telling the university or college that you are care experienced can help admissions staff consider your achievements in context. They may also get in touch with you to share more details about the support they offer.

Your information may be used (anonymously) for monitoring purposes. This helps the university to inform and improve the support they provide to other care experienced students in the future.

The information you share with UCAS is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
