  • A named contact to help you settle in and give you advice when you need it.
  • Priority allocation to UWE Bristol accommodation for the whole of your course, including the holidays.
  • You will have access to PAL (Peer Assisted Learning) to help you develop study skills.
  • We will help you apply for student finance and give you expert money advice.
  • Throughout your course, you will get academic advice.
  • You will have the chance to socialise with other carers and become a Student Ambassador.
