All over the world new students will be arriving at the university of their choice. As part of our ProtectED Code of Practice, we ask our member universities to support new students by giving safety talks and introducing the local police and security teams to students, these need to cover everything from safety in the local area to numbers they need to save and have at hand.
This is probably be the first time these students have lived away from home, and looking after themselves can be overwhelming. This guide from the Police Service has some fantastic pointers, so make sure you share with your students, or someone you know who is off to university. You can read the full guide here.
