Estranged Students

Estranged students are young people studying without the support and approval of a family network. Young people in this position often have no contact at all with their family and have removed themselves from a dysfunctional situation.

Stand Alone believe students who are estranged from their families, who are studying without the support or approval of a family network should not be held back from succeeding in Higher Education.

Bishop Grosseteste University has made a pledge to Stand Alone, which means we are an institution who is committed to supporting estranged students.

For more information about the Stand Alone Pledge, please follow this link.

Support from Student Advice

Finance

Our team can assist estranged students maximise the student finance available to them, as well as provide additional funding through our Stand Alone Bursary, and make their hardship fund applications a priority.

Accommodation

365 day University accommodation is available, as well as support with finding alternative local housing. The University identifies and liaises with accommodation providers willing to waive requirements for guarantors and security deposits wherever possible.

Mental Health

We offer free, confidential and independent counselling service, as well as 24/7 support via Big White Wall’s online service. Our academic teams are aware of the services available and are in a position to make effective referrals as appropriate.

Outreach

Our Next Steps 4 Study programme identifies students facing barriers to education, including estranged students, and includes aspiration raising through mentoring schemes, aimed at helping students achieve their potential.
