Supporting our students at risk

For nearly 200 years the University of London has been a safe and open place for education, study and research. Today, please help us continue our mission and tradition of access to all – and enable us to promote a safe haven for all those in our community who are in need. 

In recent weeks, we have been appalled by the growing humanitarian crisis caused by the conflict in Ukraine. Read our statement on Ukraine from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Wendy Thomson CBE.

Gifts from our alumni and friends can provide urgently needed and flexible assistance as part of the University’s Student Support Fund. This support ensures that students who find themselves in the most challenging circumstances, including those affected by the conflict in Ukraine, can continue their University of London education.

Supporting our students at risk
The University has a long history of providing access, scholarship and sanctuary

Separately, the University is working closely with the Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA) to assist them in their efforts to help at-risk academics.  In recent weeks, we have been able to provide philanthropic support for two such academics from Ukraine, one of whom will be hosted by our 100-year old Institute for Historical Research.  We are hoping to support a second academic from Kyiv, who will be hosted by the Warburg Institute – which itself was given safe haven in London in the 1930s.

 

Please help us continue to support our current students
