Health and Wellbeing champion

Health and wellbeing

We have a range of support available to help you to look after your physical and mental wellbeing. While on campus you will always be supported.

Advice and money

Getting on top of your finances can feel a bit overwhelming, but there are lots of ways we can support you and still make sure you enjoy student life to the fullest.

Support for disabled students

If you’re a disabled student, there’s a little more to think about when going to university. We are here to help you reach your full potential and make sure you get the right level of support so that all aspects of your study are accessible.

Student visa support

If you live outside of the UK, you will need to think about visas, immigration rules and possibly post study work visa options. We can advise you on how to apply for your student visa and provide bespoke guidance and information to support you settling into student life with us.

Dedicated support services

Our diverse student population means our students may have varying or specific needs. We provide dedicated support services to underrepresented student groups and specific communities.

Student Mentors

Student Mentor Scheme

Starting at university can be a little daunting and you might have lots of questions you'd prefer to ask a current student rather than a staff member. This is where having a student mentor can really help you settle in.
