Phishing email - Department of Education grant

A number of students at universities across the UK have recently been targeted by a phishing scam claiming they have been awarded a grant from the Department for Education. 

The email claims:

"The grant is a one-off grant awarded to students based on a number of criteria which include moral support."

Students are asked to submit information and click a link to receive their grant. 

This is a phishing email and should be deleted. Do not click on any links. Further advice on how to avoid phishing emails can be found on our security pages and the Action Fraud website

We have taken action to block this email but please stay vigilant for similar scams and get in touch to report anything suspicious.
