The University of Aberdeen is fully committed to supporting Student Carers who wish to study full or part-time, at Undergraduate or Postgraduate level.
Who is a Student Carer?
"A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support" (according to the Carers Trust).
At the University of Aberdeen we can offer you a range of support during the application process and during your studies, such as:
Specific guidance on entrance requirements;
A named contact for questions or worries you might have before and during your studies;
A range of student support services available throughout your studies.
The University of Aberdeen is a supporter of the Going Higher in Scotland Campaign undertaken by the Carers Trust.
Our Student Carers Polcy outlines our policies and support initiatives for applicants and students who are unpaid carers.
