The impact of your gift

As a donor to the University you are part of a growing community of supporters who together are making a real difference to our students and the impact of our research.

Transform lives today

Collectively, these donations are having a transformational impact on the lives of our students.

For example:

As a charity we rely on the support of our donors, like you. Every gift you give has a tangible impact.

  • £50 will form part of a hardship grant for a student in financial crisis 
  • £75 will go towards a scholarship for a student from a low-income household
  • £150 will contribute to a research project helping to tackle global problems

Why I give

Hashim Alsaidi (BSc Retail Management 2004)

“In my first year, I ran out of money and applied to the Hardship Fund. This tided me through to the end of the year and meant that I was able to carry on and get my degree. I donate because I like the idea that students in difficulty have somewhere to turn; the more people who help out the better.”

David Graves (BSc Metallurgy 1969)

“I owe a great debt to the University; I graduated in 1969 and since then I have never been without employment. I hope that my donations help current and future students have the same success that I have enjoyed.”
