The below recommended question has been developed by UCAS in collaboration with Stand Alone and a number of HEPs:
Would you consider yourself estranged from your family (i.e. not supported by your family)?
An estranged person is someone who no longer has the support of their family due to a breakdown in their relationship which has led to ceased contact. This might mean your biological, step or adoptive parents or wider family members who have been responsible for supporting you in the past.
Tick Yes if you feel this description applies to you.
Code 98 must be returned where the student has refused to provide the information.
Code 99 must be returned where the provider does not know the information. UCAS are introducing this question for applicants starting courses in September 2021, for that reason, a higher level of unknowns will be acceptable in the C20051 reporting year if providers have been unable to collect this.
Quality rules to follow
|Reason required||This data is required so that SFC, other public bodies and HEPs can plan and make informed decisions to improve the opportunities and outcomes for estranged students. The SFC want to know the retention and outcomes for this group of students to see how this compares with other groups to assess the progress being made. They also want to know the characteristics of estranged students, such as their age and gender, and the types of course they are studying on to enable policies to be developed to support these students.|
