Oxford Brookes was recently made aware of the sad news that Hassan Alhallaq, a graduate of the University, is currently in intensive care as a result of the current conflict in Gaza.

Members of Hassan’s family were killed in an attack which hit a family home in the region.

Hassan was the third recipient of the annual Gaza Scholarship. He was a Masters student at the University during the 2012/13 academic year, and he did exceptionally well. He won the Technologies Prize awarded by the University Department of Computing and Communication for outstanding achievement in the Masters Degree of Science in eBusiness.

Professor Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor at Oxford Brookes University, said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by this tragic news. Hassan came to Oxford with his family and became fully embedded into the life of the city and the University. Our thoughts are with him at this time.”
