UoB emails students in Hong Kong advising them to return home
They contacted students today to offer them support
The University of Birmingham has emailed students on their year abroad in Hong Kong in order to help them return home, following the eruption of violent protests on university campuses in the region.
Many, including the University of Nottingham and Southampton, have offered financial support in order to help students exit the region safely.
Speaking to The Birmingham Tab, a spokesperson for the University of Birmingham said:
“The welfare of our students remains our utmost concern and we have been closely monitoring the developing situation in Hong Kong, which has led to many Universities in Hong Kong suspending their operations.
"We have today contacted all our students to advise them of their options and offer them the opportunity to return home with the University’s support.”
