The Compact Scheme at Kingston University aims to support the access, transition and success of individuals from groups under-represented in higher education. The Scheme is available for mature learners, care leavers, students with a disability or specific learning difference, first generation applicants (ie those whose parents have not been to university) and those who have a household income below £25,000.
The Compact Scheme provides:
Compact Scheme candidates are given priority for a Kingston University bursary (please note that there is a separate application process and acceptance on the Compact Scheme does not guarantee a bursary).
If you are a UK care leaver, we offer additional support, including a bursary of at least £1,500 per year.
Access information, advice and guidance to help you decide which course is right for you.
Come to one of our Head Start summer schools to build confidence, make friends and prepare for university.
Stay in touch with the team, take up extra-curricular opportunities and attend workshops that will help you to get the most out of student life.
"I would recommend applying for the Compact Scheme; there's nothing to lose, only a lot to gain! A wide range of support services become available to you, as well as having a single point of contact all year. You get a great early introduction to the University before everyone else, and therefore get to make many new friends before you even start, as well as learning about all the support services available at the University."
