Statement on Ukraine

As a University we are committed to our motto of ‘unity in diversity’. Aspiring to this ideal is never more important than at times of conflict, of the kind we are now seeing in Ukraine.

We are fortunate to include in our community students, staff and alumni from Ukraine and Russia as well as others with family, business and other links to the region.

If you are being impacted, directly or indirectly, by current events, please speak with us, and will try to share counsel, support and advice.

For any students who need help or want to speak to someone, do please contact your programme leader, supervisor and/or Personal Academic Advisor or access our support and wellbeing services via

If any of our staff and faculty are affected, please reach out to your line manager.

Unity in diversity requires dialogue, communication and the understanding and acceptance of difference. We urge everyone to strive toward this goal.
