We understand that the current situation in Ukraine is both alarming and distressing. Our thoughts are with all those directly affected by these events.

As well as proactively reaching out to our Ukrainian and Russian members of our community, we have also pulled together some contact details of support services and resources that are here for anyone at this very difficult time. You may find it hard to focus on your studies or other activities – please know that the University community is here to support you through both your studies and emotionally. Please also check-in with friends and course mates and look out for one another.
