I guess it depends on the bursary. Do you know what bursary you want? A bursary I'm going for is going to be assessed automatically when I enrol at the uni in September based on information I provided when I applied for my student loan, so I don't actually apply for it directly as such. I don't think they all work this way though, so do some research. Might be worth emailling your uni

Thank you for the advice! Since I am a care leaver who is estranged from my family I was wondering what kind of bursaries i could apply for and where to look. When i look at my University website there is not much information on this and how to go about it. I've accepted an offer for Birmingham City University and I would appreciate any further advice from you.#

I would advise you to talk to the student support team/ student enquiry centre at your university. They will be best placed to advise you on which bursaries you're eligible for and the deadlines for applications.

Bursary deadlines usually have a leeway i.e. at my university, the income-based bursary and other bursaries have an application of July of that academic year - so you should have sufficient time to talk about your options with your university when you start.

Yes, I think you should have time as some bursaries can even be claimed retroactively. I don't really know much on the topic unfortunately, but found this website which may be helpful for you: https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...-a-care-leaver

But yes I'd recommend contacting the uni as the other user said, they will know best. Good luck
