Re: November/December issue of Unified
In the November/December issue of Unified, the newspaper included the article entitled ‘The mother of all money problems’, printed on page 9 in the ‘Finance’ section of the issue. Unified acknowledges that the subject and concerns raised in the article were that of one individual, and do not reflect the opinions of every student at CCCU.
We would also like to apologise for any offence caused within the article, and recognise that in the current financial climate, Canterbury Christ Church University has helped many students who have not yet received their loans and have been struggling to cope with the financial pressures of university life. In the months of October and November, CCCU assisted 70 of these students, loaning out a total of £26, 500 out of their own funds. Again, with the recession that has hit the country, and the amount that CCCU has invested into ventures such as Augustine House in recent years, to be able to loan out a sum of this amount is admirable and demonstrates that the university does have it’s students wellbeing at heart.
In addition, it should also be recognised that the staff in the Student Advisers (Financial Support Team) have been committed to helping students in financial difficulty and their efforts in this respect are fully acknowledged. Many students have only had the financial support to stay at university because of their hard work and dedication to helping at this difficult time.
