The university where Mohammed Emwazi studied computer programming before before being unmasked Islamic State terrorist "Jihadi John" said it condemns the "promotion of radicalisation, terrorism and violence."

We have strict policies to promote tolerance among our 20,000 student community, who come to study from over 150 nations.

Any student found to be engaging in radicalised activity or intimidating others would be subject to disciplinary procedures.

We strongly encourage anyone who is concerned about radicalisation to speak out and contact our pastoral team at the university. The safety and security of our students is our foremost concern.
