Information for Parents, Carers and Partners

As a University we are committed to providing a supportive and positive environment for all our students and staff. Coming to University can be quite a transition, both for new students and for you as parents, carers and partners.  We have put together a guide for you which we hope you will find useful and which can be downloaded from this page.  It covers such topics as ‘Our Community’, ‘What can you do to support them’ and ‘What to do if you have concerns’.
