We know that uni can be really enjoyable and inspiring, but sometimes it can also be challenging. That’s why we're here to support you throughout your time with us.

Our friendly student support advisers offer confidential support and guidance around personal and financial matters.

Whether you need help putting together a budget plan, advice about what funding is available or a chat about getting that study/life balance, our advisers are here for you.

And whatever your concerns, our student support advisers are a good place to start as they can help you access other specialist support within and outside of the University.

They offer a mixture of face-to-face and online support via email, phone, and video conferencing.

Chaplaincy confidential listening service

The Chaplaincy offers a safe space where any student can discuss their problems in a non-judgmental environment.

You can set the agenda and talk about anything that’s on your mind - from issues with classmates, tutors or colleagues, to relationships, family matters, financial concerns, bullying, essay deadlines or work-related stress. Never feel that your problem is too small or too large, or that you’re alone in dealing with it. Our team in the Chaplaincy can listen and bounce ideas around with you, to help you work things out.

Community support

Throughout the year there are different informal wellbeing opportunities and events, both on campus and online.
