As THE start to plan for the 2021 Times Higher Awards, they gave the winners and sponsors an opportunity to discuss and reflect on last year’s event. As the sponsor of the Outstanding Support for Students award in 2020, we sat down with the team from NTU Student Support Services and the NTU Students’ Union both instrumental in developing and delivering the programmes that contributed to their award win. More than a year on from their submission we discuss how the Sexual Violence Prevention and Response programmes are progressing, how Covid has impacted and what plans they have for future development.

It was a privilege to speak with the NTU team about their very deserving win.
