Thank you so much for deciding to make a donation. Your generosity will transform students' lives and help them reach their full potential. Please get in touch if you have any queries – we would love to hear from you.

Support us with a regular donation

By setting up a regular donation, you will provide continuing support for our students and the University. Below are a few examples of what a regular donation over three years could fund:

  • £15 per month – Will fund a travel bursary for a student who cares for a family member.
  • £30 per month – Will fund a place at our Head Start summer school for a disadvantaged student.
  • £45 per month – Will fund an emergency hardship grant for a student in need.
