#WeAreTogether campaign launch

#WeAreTogether is a new social media campaign involving students and staff from UK universities, students’ unions, pathway providers and organisations across the sector. It highlights the full range of activity the sector is engaged in to combat Covid-19, and bring all those involved in UK higher education in together in a positive online community, to share messages of solidarity, support and gratitude. 

The higher education sector is is doing extraordinary work to pull together, support students, staff, and partners, and make a significant contribution to the national effort. But it's easy to feel alone and anxious at this difficult time. This international component of the #WeAreTogether campaign aims to ensure international students feel supported, and know where to go for help.
