Parents and Guardians

Parents and Guardians

We understand that parents want to ensure their children have the opportunity to reach their full potential and be happy at their chosen university.

The university takes the safety of our students very seriously and are founder members of the ProtectEd initiative which is a University membership demonstrating our commitment to our students’ safety, security and wellbeing. Up until their 18th birthday, students under 18 will also receive monthly contact from the university during term time to ensure there are no welfare issues or concerns.

There is further information about the support we offer to students and how we keep them safe in the tiles below, and we have also compiled here the key information from student life to post-graduation destinations for you to explore.


Under UK General Data Protection Regulations the university is prohibited from releasing information about a student to a third party without consent of the student, and this includes parents or legal guardians.

The only time we will contact you about your child is if you are listed as next of kin and it is an emergency.

To discuss your child’s application with the university, your child will need to provide written consent to the relevant recruiting team.

If your son or daughter has already commenced their studies and you have concerns, you should contact a member of staff to discuss these, but please note that the university will not be able to give any information to you about your child.

For UK students contact the Health and Wellbeing Team: or telephone 02477 658029

For international students contact the International Student Support Team: or telephone 02477 652010.
