About us

The Student Support office offers advice and support to a wide range of students. Whether you are an undergraduate or a postgraduate; home or international – if there is something troubling you, or hindering you from focusing on your studies, please come and talk to us.

Students come to the Student Support office to speak with someone confidentially* about issues which concern them.

The Student Support team will offer help and guidance, and if appropriate, signpost the student to more specialist services within the University or externally.

The issues may be:

  • practical - for example, difficulties with accommodation or finances
  • emotional -family difficulties, homesickness, support through a disciplinary process
  • health-related - concerns about your mental or physical health, or that of another member of the University community
  • safety-related - concerns about security, harassment

We offer help and advice on these and many other issues. You are welcome to use our office as a first port of call. Whether you feel the issue is big or small, if it is affecting you, it’s best to talk to someone about it. It may be as simple as talking to your personal tutor, or it may be more complex and require specialist support from several different services.
