Staff wanting to contact students about the student experience and extra-curricula matters can use this page to select and target the appropriate digital engagement channel.

The Student Communications team receives numerous requests to engage with students via social media accounts that are reserved for high-value, high-inclusivity messages. All bulk communications require advance scheduling and are subject to approval and editing. ‘Promotional posts’ are items advertising optional events, awards, courses or opportunities for students. ‘Student experience’ posts emphasise inclusive engagement and include guest posts from students about their own experiences.
