NU Belong

The Student Inclusion Team works with students from specific backgrounds or communities who face personal challenges and experiences which may differ from other students. We recognise that these challenges can often add to worries and pressures and can include financial difficulties alongside managing the commitment of full-time study whilst taking care of personal wellbeing.

NU Belong is a package of practical assistance and advice offered by The Student Inclusion Team. It is committed to supporting students who are Care Leavers, Estranged, Carers and Sanctuary Scholars to ensure that the University enables success rather than presenting further barriers to learning. We work collaboratively with recruitment and outreach staff and other services across Student, Library and Academic Services to ensure our students receive high quality and appropriate support and advice, effective referrals, and enhanced engagement at every stage of their student journey.

Through a tailored offer of support, we aim to ensure that students feel empowered, encouraged, and engaged from pre-entry through to graduation.

The pages below detail the support and eligibility criteria available to different students through the NU Belong package.
