Dear Paula,

 

Further to your request for information, the University's response is
below:

 

 

Please refer to the following webpage which details the support for
students from care:
[1]https://www.bangor.ac.uk/studentservices...

 

In addition to this, Student Services refer to care leavers and how the
University supports them in every student finance presentation at
University Open Days and school visits.

 

Students can indicate that they are from care on their UCAS forms and the
Admission Team send the Care Leavers Advisor in Student Services (the
first point of contact) copies of these UCAS application forms.  Each
prospective student is sent an introductory email detailing the role of
the Care Leavers Adviser and a link to the information page on their
website.

 

 

Please note that the University has a formal complaints procedure. If you
are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request
and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision you
should write to the University’s Governance & Compliance Office in the
first instance ([2][Bangor University request email]) explaining the grounds
for your complaint. In line with guidance from the Information
Commissioner’s Office, an appeal request must be submitted within two
months of the University’s final response to this Freedom of Information
Act request.

 

Kind regards,

Compliance Team
