The SU has secured funding for a full-time Student Advisor to help you with support around academic advice, breaches and challenging University feedback. We are launching this summer- keep your eyes peeled!
In the meantime here is a helpful list of some of the student services which can help you, what they do, and how you can contact them at the university.
They can give professional, impartial and confidential advice for any problem or query, as well as being able to refer students to other services, such as the welfare team.
Mental Health & Wellbeing/ Welfare/ Counselling
The welfare team can help support students pastorally and provide help to students who have been signposted by the helpzone.
The Mental Health and Wellbeing team offer a confidential, one-to-one support service before and during your studies.
Housing / Accommodation Team
The housing team can offer support to all students with their Accommodation. Whether this is searching for the right accommodation, supporting you whilst in your accommodation or offering advice once you have left.
Money Advice/ Finance
The Money Advice Team in Student Services provides a non-judgemental confidential service to students needing advice and guidance with their finances.
The disability, dyslexia and learning support service offers confidential, one-to-one support to students with disabilities, learning difficulties and medical conditions.

The Student Achievement Team can help you with everything from referencing, note taking and academic writing, to planning, structuring and editing assignments. They can also help you to make sense of your feedback and understand how to incorporate it into your next assignments. They are based at each of the Student Helpzones at Park, FCH and Oxstalls campuses and run group tutorials throughout the year. You can also book one-to-one appointments with them via the Future Plan Portal or via email
