For legal reasons we do not generally discuss students with their parents or guardians, partners or other family members. 

We may occasionally provide family members with general information relating to the types of support we offer but we will not share information about a student unless we have permission to do so. The decision to share will always be made in consultation with the student involved.

For further information regarding the University, our events and services, parents can contact our Education Outreach Team by emailing
