If you are a Care Leaver, you have the opportunity to attend pre-induction events to assist with the smooth transition into university life, such as meeting key Newman staff and familiarising yourself with the campus. Care leavers have priority acceptance on HEADstart, Newman’s pre-entry course for combined, joint and single honours undergraduates. Care Leavers also have guaranteed access to year round accommodation as well as specialist student support. We provide this support to assist Care Leavers to reach their academic potential.

Tammy Oyekanmi, Student Welfare Advisor, can act as an advocate on your behalf, put you in touch with our Transition Mentors or help you to access any relevant support. Tammy can be contacted via email t.oyekanmi@newman.ac.uk or by telephone on 0121 476 1181 x 2620.
