Student Support and Wellbeing

Student Support and Wellbeing is a department with many branches of support, including - disability supportmental health and wellbeingfunding support, and support for estranged students and care leavers. We also house The Chaplaincy for students of faith (although all are welcome!)

Apprenticeship students, please see this webpage for advice on funded support. 

What you can do BEFORE September:

  • Attend our transition support events (Links to an external site.)
  • Students with disabilities or learning difficulties may be eligible for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), to help fund any extra costs that they may have to pay when studying. This can include specialist equipment, a non-medical helper, extra travel costs, or other costs. You will need written proof of your disability from an appropriate member of the medical profession. If you have a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, you will be asked to have an independent assessment of your needs.
  • More information on the Government support can be found at Disabled Students' Allowance(Links to an external site.). More information on support available from the University can be found at Student Support and Wellbeing. (Links to an external site.)
  • You can contact us for specific advice on what support you may be entitled to. We want to make sure you have the support you need in place for when you study with us (contact details can be found below).
