Many of our students have children or other dependents to care for while studying with us, and we understand it can be a juggling act. That’s why we offer support and advice to help you balance your home commitments with studying.
If you’re a full-time student and you’ve got children or an adult who depends on you, you might be able to get extra help on top of your main student finance.
The amount you get depends on your household income and doesn’t usually have to be paid back.
This can include:
For further financial advice, you can chat to our Student Supprt Advisers.
There’s a range of childcare available in and around Canterbury and Medway.
If you’re paying for childcare you may be eligible for a contribution towards your costs through the Government’s Tax-free Childcare Scheme. For further information click here.
For the convenience and comfort of parents and babies, there are baby feeding and changing rooms at our Canterbury, Medway and Tunbridge Wells campuses.
Find our baby care and feeding facilities on the interactive campus map.
Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, we’re committed to providing the best possible support so that you succeed in your studies and get the most out of your university experience.
