Support and Wellbeing
Student Liaison Officer
The Student Liaison Officer offers an open door policy and is your first port of call for any issues that you may encounter at the University. If the Student Liaison Officer cannot help, then they will be able to refer you to the most qualified person ensuring that you are looked after in the best possible way. Working closely with the Student Union, the Student Liaison Officer has extensive knowledge of University Clubs and Societies and can advise you of the contacts for these.
The Disability Officer manages all issues surrounding dyslexia and disability for the University. If you have any concerns about dyslexia or any other form of disability (sight, speech, hearing impairment, mobility impairment, long term disabling medical conditions or mental health conditions) then please contact them. There are many adjustments that can be made to your course, study and exams that can be authorised, but the Disability Officer needs to approve these. All conversations are confidential.
To ensure that our students always have someone that they can talk to at all hours, day or night, we are also a partner with the Validium Counselling Service. This service is available to all students and can offer advice on a range of issues.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year
The Chapel of St. George the Martyr is situated in the University Quad as is open to all students on a daily basis. The Chaplains visit the University weekly and students can chat informally with them about concerns or worries they may have. The Multi-faith contact can help students of any faith or none about any concerns that they may have, and advise other places of worship at the University.
