Dear University of Southampton,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the following information on the number of undergraduate and postgraduate students impacted by long Covid at your university.

How many postgraduate and undergraduate students were recorded to have had long Covid at your university at any time in the period between September 2020 - September 2021?

How many postgraduate and undergraduate students from your university:
a) Deferred their studies citing long Covid as the reason
b) Took a leave of absence until the following academic year citing long Covid as the reason
c) Permanently dropped out of their course, as a result of developing long Covid

What were the five longest periods in days that postgraduate and undergraduate students took a leave of absence from their course due to long Covid in the time period between September 2020 - September 2021?

Does your university offer any specialised support for postgraduate and undergraduate students living with long Covid? If so could you please provide details of these services.

What plans, if any, are in place to improve the support available to postgraduate and undergraduate students who have long Covid at your university?

Yours faithfully,

Grace Pritchard
