    Chatback about thanking lecturers
    by Katy Willis - Friday, 22 May 2020, 10:22 AM


    Thanks for your lovely Chatback saying you wanted to send a thank you card to your lecturers. I'm sure they'd be very moved.

    If you send it to campus the team will make sure they get it, or forward it on by checking directly with them for their address. 

    Thank you for being so thoughtful!

    Updated Covid-19 and Summer Hardship Fund applications
    by Debra Smitham - Thursday, 21 May 2020, 11:31 AM


    The standard term time University Hardship Fund has now closed but the Summer Hardship Fund is now open for applications. This is for students who will be in financial difficulty during the summer break.

    We have also updated the Covid-19 Hardship Fund (previously the Short Term University Hardship Fund) to offer longer term help to students who have been directly financially affected by the virus outbreak.

    If you are unsure which one you should apply to or have any further queries then please email for further advice.
