The School of Modern Languages and Cultures is shocked and saddened by the tragic attack in Nice last night. We send our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those affected. Any students who are currently in France, and especially in the Nice region, should continue to heed the advice of the local authorities and remain vigilant. An emergency number has been set up by the French authorities for anyone in the UK concerned about friends or relatives in Nice (+3343175646) and the French Embassy in Paris has a 24 hour helpline number (+33144513100). Students who have been affected in any way by the events can contact the French Year Abroad team in the usual way, by email, while counselling support is also available (firstname.lastname@example.org).
