The University's Personal Tutor system is the foundation of student support and welfare provision. Your Personal Tutor is available to provide both general academic advice and to discuss personal matters which are affecting you and your studies.

Students and Staff can also contact Wellbeing Support Services, who are always available to offer support and advice, as well as providing a wide range of other resources.

Welfare and Wellbeing - What does it mean?

Wellbeing is about being well and feeling good. It is linked to happiness and life satisfaction. Welfare can mean the same thing (faring well), or instead be used to describe initiatives that promote our wellbeing.

Our wellbeing depends on many things, such as: our health; feeling safe; and having a sense of belonging. The department strives to create a culture that promotes wellbeing, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

One of the best ways for a department to support the wellbeing of staff and students is to listen to them. Your opinion matters, whether in staff or student surveys or informal meetings with personal tutors.

While student wellbeing is supported by the Personal Tutor system, the department's dedicated Welfare and Communication Committee (staff link) caters to the needs to the wider department (staff and students alike), especially on matters equality, diversity and inclusion.
