Your Student Hub is designed to be your first port of call for enquiries, providing advice on a wide-range of course related matters, plus information about university services and facilities. They offer a face-to-face service through our friendly Student Advisers and a Digital Student Hub is available 24/7 for quick answers to your questions or to submit an enquiry online.
However you study, our Academic and Study Skills tutors are here to help you every step of the way, and offer a wealth of advice on academic writing and technology to support your learning. They can help you to plan your first assignment and improve your time management or presentation skills. There are free courses available on campus and by webinar to help improve your English writing skills, focussing on style, punctuation, grammar and how to structure a piece of writing effectively.
We are committed to providing equal opportunities in education for all students, and our Disability Service exists to help students with disabilities. Our advisers work with students to help steer them through any necessary screenings or assessments and can provide a range of support for students with specific learning disabilities, such as dyslexia.
Disability Advisers can also assist with any application for the Disabled Students' Allowance, liaising with appropriate funding bodies. Advisers also have links with academic colleagues and other central services to raise awareness of disability issues and to ensure that appropriate support is available.
Our Chaplains are here for everyone, irrespective of your belief. They can provide spiritual help, confidential advice, friendship and support to help you to navigate your time at university. The Chaplains can also assist you in finding information about places of prayer and worship, whatever your faith community.
Student wellbeing is our priority. Our Counselling, Mental Health and Wellbeing Service offers you the chance to talk to a professionally trained member of staff in confidence, about any personal problems you may have. Both individual and group counselling is free to all students registered with the University and you can attend courses and workshops on a range of wellbeing and mental health themes, including mindfulness, anxiety and building self-worth.
