We are horrified at the events currently unfolding in Ukraine and our thoughts are with everyone affected, both in Ukraine and in our local community. This will be a difficult and stressful time for many and the College is committed to doing all we can to support those who are affected.
We fully appreciate that some students may find it difficult to focus on their studies at this time. Any students struggling to concentrate on their academic work or facing heightened anxiety and stress levels should talk to their tutor or any member of staff who will be able to offer support and advice. The Hub and Student Services are available to provide a quiet space to reflect and take time out if students need to and staff will be able to support to any student feeling anxious about the situation.
The Student Services team along with the Student Union will be coordinating the collection of donations of money and essential items for Ukraine. We would be extremely grateful for any help you are able to offer.
We are a diverse community and many of our staff and students have links to Ukraine and Russia. We ask everyone to continue to respect and support each other at this time.
We have and will continue to reach out to those in our community who are directly impacted by the war in Ukraine to offer our support.
