Student Support Appeal

Help our students thrive.

Many students are still struggling to pay for essentials as we slowly recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

Others can’t afford to buy the books and equipment they need to finish their studies.

Your generous donation today will help a student who can’t pay rent or even buy food, as well as help them pay for a laptop or a stethoscope.

COVID-19 Vaccine Appeal

You can help power VU’s elite team of researchers develop a new generation vaccine against the coronavirus. Led by Professor Vasso Apostolopoulos, the team is adapting their unique approach and patented technology to create vaccines against current and future variants of COVID-19 and identify life-saving drugs to fight the virus.

They can’t do this without you. You can donate today to fast track this research from the laboratory to trials.
