Need somebody to speak to?

We expect that your time at university will be successful and enjoyable, however we understand that there may be times when you may need some extra support, or when things do not go quite to plan. 

Our friendly and experienced Student Advisers are on hand to talk to you in confidence about any issue that you may feel you need support with; you may be feeling homesick, have a relationship or family problem, or find that you have a personal or health issue which is impacting on your university experience.  No problem is too big or too small; we offer practical support, health advice, as well as access to self-help materials (see below), and referrals to our specialist support services, including:

Our Advisers run daily drop-ins every day from the Student Hub – please just ask to speak with somebody in confidence.
