i’m planning to apply to ucl but i don’t know if i’m eligible for a contextual offer. my school meets the criteria, but my postcode doesn’t, however i may still be eligible as i could qualify as a young carer.

i have caring responsibilities for my sisters who suffers from a chronic illness (ME/CFS) and by definition i qualify as a young carer. i’m not sure if there’s an official way to qualify as a young carer and if i need this in order to be eligible for a contextual offer or if i could just explain my situation and get the offer that way.

if anyone knows how this works or has any advice then pls reply! it’d be much appreciated x

Every university has different rules for making contextual offers. Give the admission officer a ring. They will be able to advise you correctly.

that would qualify as a young carer i believe for unis. Usually unis have a page explaining how they give the young carer offers out and what you need to do i think (ive seen them as i have scrolled through unis pages) but i know UCAS definitely has one. Do some research and maybe call up unis if you are unsure. Make sure you tick that you are a young carer on your UCAS application though.
