Support a Student in Challenging Times The Global pandemic has reduced the capacity of the University to respond to student needs. Our primary concern is the wellbeing and safety of current and incoming students, particularly the most vulnerable, who must not be the ones to lose out during this period.

The support of alumni and friends at this time is fully inspirational and hugely important.
