Humanitarian Crises and Conflicts

We are an international University with a deep commitment to social responsibility and democratic values. This includes providing support where people have been affected by humanitarian crises and conflict across the globe.

How we can help

Support available to students may include academic, wellbeing or financial support from professionally trained staff. Full details can be found on our Student Support Hub.

Our staff may seek support from their line manager and department. They also have access to our Employee Assistance Programme, which is available 24 hours every day, and our Chaplaincy Services.
