Wellbeing support

If you have a query and are unsure who to ask, our Student Advice Hub will be able to advise on who best to speak to. This team is also the place to go for general help. They are based in the Student Hubs on each campus, and some of the team are recent graduates themselves.

Our Student Wellbeing Team is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and provides counselling and mental health support to students who are experiencing difficulties in relation to their mental health. 

We also provide a range of selfhelp resources and we work with partner organisations such as the NHS to help our students look after their mental health. 

In addition, our university is partnering with Kooth Student, who offer an online counselling and emotional well-being service through mobile, tablet and desktop.

The service is available to all our students, providing free, anonymous, online counselling during the afternoons, evenings and weekends, 52 weeks a year. 

We have also joined up with the Students’ Union to produce a university-wide mental health and wellbeing action plan for students and staff.

From physical and emotional, to financial and social, it covers a range of areas your loved one may need support in.

We tailor our support on an individual basis to ensure that you will receive the most effective support.
