Uni of Lincoln to offer 20 Ukrainian students the opportunity to transfer to Lincoln

This package will include a full tuition fee waiver

The University of Lincoln is developing a “package of support” for university students and academics who arrive in the UK who have had to leave their studies in Ukraine.

In an email to all staff and students, the university said: “The university, in the first instance, is opening its doors to help and support Ukrainian students and academics, by enabling them to continue their study and work, and to live in a welcoming and supportive environment.”

The package of support will initially be offered to 15 undergraduate and five postgraduate students who would like to transfer to Lincoln, as a result of having to leave their Ukrainian university, with the intention of completing their studies.

They said: “This includes a full tuition fee waiver and accommodation bursary. Welfare support will be on hand via the university’s wellbeing and student support teams. The university is also developing a support package for academic staff displaced by the conflict in Ukraine to continue their academic work at Lincoln for a minimum of six months.”

The University of Lincoln is launched a public fundraising campaign to provide bursaries to cover the living costs.

“University staff can donate through Payroll Giving, this is a simple way to ensure full tax relief on their donation. Full details can be found on the link here, please enter “University of Lincoln” as your chosen charity. If staff have any questions, please contact [email protected]

“Anybody who wishes to donate to the University of Lincoln’s Ukraine Students and Academics Support Appeal, no matter how much, can do so using the university’s dedicated Just Giving page on the link here. 

“By establishing this fund, the university will use all money raised, now and in the future, to support those in need due to the conflict in Ukraine and other humanitarian crisis. All money donated will go to those seeking refuge and support.”
