    Disability Advisory Service (DAS) Welcome Event

    The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) is holding a Welcome Event for Disabled Students on Friday 7 September 2018.  The day is an informal opportunity for students who have disclosed a disability to find out about the support and services available at the University. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions about disability-related study support arrangements. It is important to ensure these are organised in advance of the start of term where possible, to enable you to focus on studies and get the most from your time once you’re here.

    Spotlight on graduate scholarships: Ernest Plange Kwofie

    What has been the impact of receiving the Scholarship?

    Without a fully funded scholarship there's no way I would have made it here. From my background it would have been difficult to finance postgraduate studies even in Ghana. Without this scholarship, even if I had to pay one tenth of the cost then it would have still been a very difficult thing. But with a fully funded scholarship, I’m just thinking about books and not my pockets.
