KU: Support Syrian Students

The UK government has advised all UK universities to support destitute Syrian students by waiving their fees and providing financial support. There are 650 students in the UK. At Kingston University we have a very small number of Syrian students - no more than 10.

Currently, Kingston University Students' Union (KUSU) are campaigning for the University to adhere to the recommendations from the UK Government to support students as they require. So far Syrian students have been given access to the Hardship Fund via the Student Life Centre and longer term support is being explored.

If you would like to show your support in campaigning KU to waive the fees of Syrian students and to provide them with long term support until the end of their course, please sign this petition.

NB: Your individual details will not be shared with anyone else.
