Looking After Yourself

Studying can challenge you in unexpected ways especially when you're working around work and home commitments. If you are feeling stressed or unhappy you can always find the support you need at the University. 

We have an all new Mental Health and Wellbeing service which includes the following:

  • Counselling Services who can offer confidential support on a one-to-one basis. They can help support you dealing with any personal issues you may encounter. Please use their online form to make contact.
  • Self-care Advice ranges from downloadable care sheets to downloadable apps, and links to specialist organisations who provide targetted advice. 
  • Our Chaplaincy can offer comfort to all of our students whether you follow a religion or not. They consist of a multi-faith team who offer an inclusive service via email and phone for our distance learners.

Student Advisors

Student Advisors work within the Faculty and can provide extra support for any student who might be struggling to keep up to date with their work or facing other issues affecting their studies.

Personal Tutors

A Personal Tutor is allocated to every student. They maintain regular communication with each of their tutees in order to support students who may not be making satisfactory progress or who are at risk of withdrawal. They may assist students in their personal and academic development, planning and progression as well as helping them liaise with other staff and support facilities in their Faculty and the wider University.

Faculty Enabling Tutors

The Faculty Enabling Tutor (FET) liaise with the Student Enabling Centre (SEC) regarding provision for specific disabled students and disseminates information from the SEC on the needs of specific disabled students. The FET also monitors requests for, and provision of, specific examination and assessment arrangements, publicise FET ‘surgery’ arrangements and make available time to meet with individual disabled students to enable them to discuss their own faculty-specific disability issues where necessary. The FET takes a pro-active role in monitoring the welfare and academic progress of disabled students within the school. If required a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) will be completed.
