How to include a gift in your Will
We have produced some guidance and suggested wording (PDF) for your Will or Codicil to help you leave a legacy gift. This will help to ensure that your gift is tax efficient, as the University has Exempt Charity status.
Whenever you write or update your Will, we strongly recommend that you seek professional advice from a solicitor.
Adding a gift to an existing Will
If you have already made a Will, you can add a legacy to the University by simply adding a Codicil form (PDF) to an existing Will.
