Enhancing student wellbeing
Silvercloud was launched thanks to the Alumni Fund. This is an online self-help platform covering stress management, self-esteem, communication and more, which dramatically extends the reach of the University’s counselling service.
Donations have also enabled a gardening scheme to bloom on campus, by purchasing tools and equipment.
Sessions will be run for students as part of a package of supported recovery, and also for those who wish to learn new skills and maintain good physical and mental health.
Two-thirds of our undergraduates choose a placement or to study abroad – an experience that sets them apart from other graduates. Thanks to you, the Alumni Fund offers placement grants of £2,000. Madeline Saunders worked at the Lab for Infant and Toddler Language at Emerson College, USA.
She says: “Your kindness and generosity are what allow students to strive for opportunities that they may not have been able to without your support. We are incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful alumni who want to help current students.”
