Our alumni improve the success and progression of our students
The support of our alumni community and friends makes a real difference to the life of students. For many students, the financial requirements of attending university can be daunting. That is where so many generous people step in, offering the helping hand to take them from apprehensive first years to successful graduates.

Students achieve higher when they are able to access all opportunities available to them
All our courses offer students enrichment opportunities outside of the main content, whether this is placements, awards evenings or sports teams. Your donations make it possible for more students to be able to participate in these activities.
Let us introduce you to some of our students who have been able to engage in all opportunities thanks to your donations.
