Our statement on the devasting events in North Africa

We are extremely shocked and saddened to see the very distressing news of the earthquake in Morocco and the flooding in Libya, which have both been devastating, with widespread destruction and tragic loss of life. Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected in the region and worldwide.

We know this will be a very anxious time for many in our community, and we are here to support you. If you need urgent support, or someone to talk to, please do get in touch with our Advice Team or the University’s wellbeing service for support and guidance; they are here to help you.

Please also remember that if your studies, including examinations and assessments, are affected by your personal circumstances, then the University’s Mitigation process is there to help support you. Mitigation works by giving you extra time to complete your assignments, or the chance to take an exam later in the year.

A number of members of our community have asked about fundraising for the victims of these disasters. You can donate to any of these established charities affiliated with the Disasters Emergency Committee. Links to their current appeals are as follows:  

Islamic Relief

Action Aid

British Red Cross
