Student Futures Fund


The global pandemic has fast-tracked the future of work and use of technology. Regardless of which degree programme our students choose to study, we’re committed to supporting them to gain the skills they need for life.

Shaping the world?

We provide our students with data skills training, experimental learning opportunities, research led projects and transformational life and work experiences that happen outside the classroom so they remain amongst the most employable in the world and will go on to shape the world in their chosen fields.

Join in

Contribute to our Student Futures Fund today to ensure all students have access to the training they need to build confidence and expand their skills to make an impact on the world.
