Hi,
I’ve had my english ivy for a couple months now and it was doing just fine. I came back home and noticed it has been dropping a LOT of leaves - going brown and some are wilted whereas some are dry and crispy... There is new growth as well which is confusing me, but then some of this new growth seems to be drooping as well. At Uni it was doing fine, little bit of leaf drop here and there but nothing major, but now it is very sparse? It was on top of a radiator at uni too that just started working for the last month, so could that have had any effect? Please help me

I`m quite surprised that there is any life at all left in that plant. That looks like a metal container - a teapot maybe? which has probably NO drainage holes in the base. What happens to metal when it`s placed on a radiator? It cooks!
If you want to try and save it, I would find some new compost/soil and a flower pot of some kind with drainage holes - re plant it, give it a good watering, and put it on a window ledge where it will get some light. Put a saucer under it and make sure you give it a drink no more than once a week. Don`t put it on a radiator. You might succeed with it, it is a very tough plant usually.
