In light of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the University is clear about its responsibility to do everything it can to reduce rates of infection in the community. The health and wellbeing of our alumni and students is of paramount importance to the University. We therefore ask all volunteers undertaking mentoring programs to exercise appropriate precaution when scheduling meetings with mentees.
Face-to-face meetings should be be changed to online meetings, using web conferencing software such as Skype or Zoom, or held over the phone. For more information about the University's ongoing response to COVID-19, visit our dedicated information page.
