Pathways to Further Support


The Transitions Team, in Student Finance and Welfare, offer a wide range of further support to undergraduate students who may have specific requirements, interests or responsibilities – to help you fulfil your potential.

Care leaver students

If you have lived in local authority care and you are looking to study at DMU, or you are already studying with us, the Transitions Team is available for you.

Estranged young people - studying without parental support

If you are a young person studying without the support of a family network, we may be able help you navigate the requirements of student funding applications, accommodation issues and provider further financial help at key times of the years.

Student carers

You may be caring for a partner, family member or friend who is elderly or has a disability. We are available to provide advice and guidance as necessary. We also offer a small discretionary fund to help with some of the costs of caring responsibilities.

Asylum Seekers

Students seeking asylum in the UK are not eligible for government student funding and may be classed as international students for fee purposes. The Transitions Team administer the Article 26 Scholarship; which provides eight students with a full fee waiver to undertake an undergraduate course at DMU.
