Student Support Services

We’re that helping hand and friendly face to ensure you make the most of your learning journey

We understand that taking your next steps in education can be an exciting, but also daunting, experience. Our friendly lecturers and support staff get to know you as an individual and provide you with a warm welcome to help you settle in.

We listen to you

Your voice matters, and if your learning experience isn’t going as you hoped then we’re here to offer support. Our counselling service staff are always happy to chat through any of your concerns and queries. You can also participate in and share ideas for improvement with our Student Union, who help ensure your opinions and views are listened to.

Disability support

If you have an impairment which affects your study, we can provide disability support. We offer a dyslexia support service and ensure that our learning areas are accessible to all.

Additional support services

Our dedicated and specialist teams will support you by assessing your learning and educational needs and agreeing a support plan with you to help you make the most of your chosen learning opportunity. This may include adjustments to teaching, one to one support, workshops, smaller class sizes or assistive technology – whichever suits you best. We also offer special arrangements for exams and assessments that mirror the support received throughout the course.
