We conducted research with 234 care experienced university students in England and Wales to explore the factors that promoted access to higher education. We found that embedded support significantly aided positive transitions to university life. This report addresses shortfalls in support and highlights examples of best practice identified by care experienced students. The report concludes with recommendations for universities, made jointly with Care Leaver Covenant (CLC).
