what it's all in aid of...

By playing along and donating, you’ll be supporting students like Eirini. This is what she told us about the difference an Emergency Student Support Fund award has made to her…

"The Emergency Student Support Fund definitely gave me a moral boost to continue with my studies as I was furloughed from my work which I need to support myself. I am more determined now and I can truly say that the fund is a life saver based on the unprecedented circumstances that we experience It is a financial helping hand that enables student to sit back and focus on their studies and not worry about the uncertainty of our times. I truly appreciate your donation and I hope more people will take you as an example .”

Anything you can donate or raise will go directly towards ensuring that coronavirus has minimal disruption on students' learning by supporting students facing unexpected financial challenges due to the escalating response to the virus. Please donate today to support students like Eirini. Your support will go to the students most affected by coronavirus, including care leavers, estranged students, medical and nursing students, and students with children or caring responsibilities.
