"I would like to express my deep concern and support for all those who have been affected by the conflict in Ukraine at what will be a concerning and difficult time for many members of our community. 

We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and have reached out to our Ukrainian and Russian students and staff directing them to our support services.   

We continue to support the work of the Council for At Risk Academics (CARA) to provide a place of safety at Queen’s University for all threatened in the current conflict.  

There are a number of agencies actively working to get humanitarian aid to those in need such as the Disasters Emergency Committee  British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal and Save the Children UK | International Children's Charity and we will continue to look at ways to enable our staff, students and wider community to lend their support in a practical way.

We have been reviewing our International Collaborations and are working with our colleagues across the sector via Universities UK (UUK) and the Russell Group, as well as with the UK government, and stand side by side with the International community and the actions that are being taken. “
