Parents and supporters of students
Information for parents and supporters about the support available to students as they transition into University in 2021.
Our Covid-19 pages are continually updated and should be your first point of contact to find key updates and guidance for staff and students.
If you have further questions about your students studying or working with us during the Covid-19 pandemic, please get in touch via the contact details below.
We have a policy that sets out how and when we will contact a students' parent or supporter - for example in an emergency. We don't routinely contact parents or supporters because a student has reported Covid-19 as this (in most cases) is not an emergency and your student should be able to alert you directly.
There is further support and information available to you if you are a student with caring responsibilities:
