Student Services

Student Services offers advice and support to ensure that your experience as a student is successful and fulfilling. Our services are available to undergraduate and postgraduate students of any background, protected characteristics, or stage/mode of study.

The advice and support we provide empowers students to take an active role in managing their student experience. We encourage all students to develop a sense of personal responsibility for all aspects of their wellbeing. We promote individuality, open-mindedness and critical thinking, while respecting the diversity of our community. 

Student Services provides advice and support in the following ways:

  • Advice and Support Centre (ASC), an information centre for students
  • Support plans for students with disabilities, including specific learning difficulties
  • Life and wellbeing advice
  • Counselling and mental health support
  • Financial advice and support
  • Advice on academic issues
  • Residential support and activities for students in University residences

Where appropriate we link in with external agencies in the local community.
