Support we offer

We offer support for a wide range of issues, including

  • Staying on course with your studies
  • Switching to a different course
  • Managing stress
  • Difficulties with anxiety and/or depression
  • Issues with flatmates/accommodation
  • Homesickness

The Student Support team aims to offer the appropriate support for all students. If required, we will refer you to any specialist help within the University or externally.

Students not currently resident within the UK and requiring mental health assistance are advised to contact local mental health resources or services within your country as we won’t be able to refer you to those services.
