The University and the Law School is committed to providing a supportive and positive environment for all members of its community and a quality student experience. We recognise that there may be times when things do not go as planned. In times like these, it's important to know that there is a comprehensive support and welfare structure available to help with all kinds of different problems.

Law School Support
Each student is assigned a personal tutor from the Law School who will provide academic advice and assist you with University life. Your personal tutor is one of your most important contacts who you can turn to for confidential advice regarding personal matters. Find out more on your key contacts page.
Personal tutors may refer cases needing higher level support to the wellbeing tutor. You may contact them directly for issues you are not comfortable discussing with your personal tutor. Find out who your wellbeing tutor is on your key contacts page.
Our law reception team are a friendly and knowledgeable bunch who can help to answer most questions or signpost you to the correct place, so they are a good resource. Please bear in mind their opening hours have been reduced due to Covid-19 so perhaps drop them an email in the first instance.
Module Leaders & Seminar Tutors
Contact your tutors about the material covered in your modules. If there is something you do not understand, you should first speak with your seminar tutor during their advice and feedback hours and they should be able to offer you the help you need. Seminar tutors can also offer advice on assignments. Module leaders are responsible for all academic aspects of modules, including lecture content, seminar questions and solutions, setting assignments and tests if appropriate, and the provision of generic feedback on assessment. Contact them about any academic issue relating to a module which your seminar tutor cannot help with.
IT Bursary: If you are a home fee paying undergraduate or postgraduate taught student who is struggling to meet the cost of the IT equipment you need to undertake your course, then you may be eligible to apply for a non-repayable IT Support Bursary of £600. Find out more.
Law School Hardship Fund: The Law School has a limited fund available to assist undergraduate and postgraduate students experiencing sudden and unforeseen financial difficulties. Applications may be made to the fund by any student who is currently registered on a taught or research programme with us (this excludes students whose home department is not the Law School). Find out more.
The University has centralised provision for personal, health, wellbeing and safety support in order to improve and standardise student welfare.
