Estranged Students

At Leeds Conservatoire we recognise that students who are estranged from their families may need additional support in lieu of a family network or assistance from their local authority.

Finance

We provide advice and support to estranged students on how to apply for any available funding and associated benefits. If you would like to talk to our student funding team, please contact studentfunding@lcm.ac.uk.

We will also cover the cost of gown hire and photographs at Graduation for our estranged students.

Accommodation

If you’re an estranged student, you could apply for one of our accommodation start-up vouchers, meaning that you can buy all of the essentials you need to live independently while you study.

Mental health and wellbeing

Our estranged students are able to access fortnightly mentoring support with a named contact in our health and wellbeing team.

Conoravirus (COVID-19) advice and support for students without a family network can be accessed here.
