Disability

We’re experienced in supporting students with a range of disabilities, long-term medical conditions and specific learning differences. If you disclose your disability or condition to us, we can consider what support may be available to you, for example, individual exam arrangements, assistive technology and/or 1:1 study skills tuition.

Mental Health and Counselling

Counselling is about walking through your problems with a professionally trained listener. To relieve anxiety and stress, we can consider making adjustments to your studies that fit your needs.

Safety

Our protection services are 24/7, and our SafeZone app, enables users to call for help and assistance when they need it most, giving fast access to university response teams whenever and wherever you are on campus. We can look to offer ultra violet pens, personal attack alarms, burglar alarms units and/or free advice about security. To report any discriminatory incidents, we also have a Case Reporting System.

At a place where you feel like your whole world is crumbling down, all it truly takes is for that one person to give you hope. In my case, this was Mr Grant. Growing up, I've always had this misconception that professional people are unapproachable and impersonal. But after contacting him regarding my situation, and explaining my circumstances to him, he has been nothing but sympathetic and understanding. He has gone above and beyond; I'm grateful and appreciative for eternity. He's done his job exceptionally well. He is a great asset to the university.
