Supporting our students

Disabilities and Dyslexia Service (DDS)

We provide a range of services to help you if you have a disability, a long-term medical or mental health condition or specific learning differences such as dyslexia. Some of the areas where we can give specialist support include:

  • Special examination arrangements (such as extra time in exams)
  • Help with finding an academic support worker
  • Screening if you think you may have a specific learning difference
  • Assistance to apply for study-related funding

Take a look at our Disabilities and Dyslexia Service (DDS) pages for more information.

Personal and emotional life

Everyone needs support from time to time and it’s best to seek it before situations become too problematic. Our team of professional counsellors offer confidential counselling on a wide range of emotional difficulties and also help you transform your life, by developing and maximising your potential.

The team also offers guidance with mental health difficulties and runs workshops and groups on areas such as: motivation, confidence-building, stress management, exam anxiety, relaxation, meditation, personal development and many more.

Visit our counselling pages for more information.

Academic advice and representation

Academic advice, student representation and support is provided by the Students’ Union. It offers appointments and drop-ins at all sites. The Students’ Union is an independent, democratic organisation overseen by a Board of Trustees, supported by a team of elected officers and professional staff.
