Be well

Student Wellbeing is here to support you with emotional, mental health, disability and health related issues.

All of our services are delivered by trained and experienced staff. We are based in the Hutton Hub and take a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to ensure that you get the best support possible.

If you want to find out more about Student Wellbeing please contact our friendly frontline team who will be happy to talk you through the range of services we offer, help you to decide which is best for you, and refer you on to one of our specialist staff.

There has been  tremendous support especially in the beginning when I questioned whether I had the ability and the confidence to do a Masters degree. So please, if you are thinking "I can't possibly study I've got this condition or that condition" do not let it put you off. There is so much support and help and adjustments can be made to make you more confident and ultimately help you gain qualifications you never dreamt were possible.
