The university has updated our statement in light of recent events. Please read the updated statement here.
We fully understand that the invasion of Ukraine by Russian armed forces is dangerous and will be distressing for our students, staff and alumni. Our thoughts are with everyone affected at this difficult time.
As a global university with proud links to Ukraine, our community is deeply concerned and sends the Ukrainian people our support and earnest hopes for a peaceful resolution even as the situation deteriorates.
The university is contacting students in our community who are directly impacted by recent events to offer support for their wellbeing and to alleviate the undoubted pressures on them at this time.
We are monitoring the situation and strongly recommend that staff and students follow Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office advice, which currently advises against all travel to Ukraine and all but essential travel to some regions of Russia.
We understand that some students may find it difficult to focus on their studies at this time. Anyone struggling with academic work should first talk to their tutor, who will be able to offer support and advice.
Students can contact our Support and Wellbeing Service for support with their mental health and wellbeing, either on their own behalf or if they are worried about another student.
The Home Office has confirmed that Ukrainians who are on study visas in the UK will have their visas temporarily extended or be able to switch onto different visa routes. Full details are available here.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please contact the financial support team via an online appointment or call 0115 823 2071.
The Employee Hub gives staff access to our employee assistance programme providing free confidential support, over the telephone (0808 168 2143) or on-line 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please also speak to your line manager about any other support or flexibility you may require.
We understand how difficult this situation will be for staff and students in our community and will do everything we can to support those who are or will be affected. Nottingham is a diverse community with many different nationalities and we ask people to continue to respect and support each other at this time.
