A student in the final year of her degree is believed to have taken her own life, the latest in a devastating string of suicides from the same top university. Lara Nosiru, 23, was in her final year at the prestigious University of Bristol when she took her own life, with the tragedy sparking a review into student mental health issues.
She is the fourth student from the university believed to have claimed her life since September. The neuroscience student’s body was found over the weekend after a two-hour search after authorities received a report that a woman had jumped from the city’s Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Her death comes after students Daniel Green, 18, Kim Long, 18 and Miranda Williams, 19, took their own lives since the start of the academic year.
Lara, who was a member of dancing groups in Bristol, was originally from Essex and attended Ockenden School before moving away for university.
The University of Bristol has now said they have increased their student counselling provisions, as well as working with other support groups.
