Student Wellbeing is here to support you with any emotional, mental health, disability and health related issues which you may experience throughout your time at university. All of our services are delivered by trained and experienced staff who take a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to ensure that you get the best support possible.

What we can help you with

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.
