Student Support & Engagement Team

Helping you through personal or academic issues

Student Support & Engagement Team

If you're looking for advice or support to help you through any personal or academic issues, have a confidential chat with our team.

As a new student, you’ll know just how much of a big deal coming to university is, especially if this is the first time you've moved away from home. It's such an exciting time in your life, and our Student Support & Engagement Team are here to help you make the most of your time here. 

We understand the pressures that moving to a new place and meeting new people can bring – as well as how tricky it can be learning how to balance your social life and workload, not to mention managing your own finances and study. We also know that it’s not unusual for new students to have trouble coping with it all. 

There's a wide variety of support available and we can advise you on the best way forward to resolve any difficulties that you’re having. 

So, whether you just want a quick chat about something that’s been getting you down, or you’re struggling with a bigger issue, contact the team and we'll do our best to help you out. And don’t worry, it’s all completely confidential. 

Contact the team via email: – this mailbox is monitored daily.
