" I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because as a scientist, I don't want to focus solely on innovation for the sake of it. I think that working with a group of Fellows who share my interest in sustainability and also accessible education is a change to bring together our respective disciplines and skills to create holistic solutions to the issues in our university and the wider community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Accent
Accent was created as an all-around resource providing support for Natural Sciences students coming from non-English based academic systems by providing resources, translation lists, and signposting to support services. Our goal is to extend the site beyond the Natural Sciences Foundation modules by the end of 2020. The site will be available for use by incoming first years in August for the foundation term, but by December, we hope to update the site so that they will be able to access resources for all the Natural Sciences first-year content.
