Impact of Coronavirus on SWWDTP students and research projects
The SWWDTP hub is aware of the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on partnership students and their research projects. We very much appreciate the concern that this situation is causing and we wish to reassure students that the hub remains available to support them as appropriate. Students are reminded that their first point of contact for queries relating directly to their research projects or to pastoral support is their home institution. For other enquiries, as a move to home working for the hub team is likely in the near future, please contact us via our hub email  Please also check UKRI guidance, which has updates to the Coronavirus situation at
