Student Support

We aim to create a supportive learning community in which students from diverse backgrounds can thrive and fulfil their potential. All students are assigned a year tutor for the entirety of their degree for personalised academic support and guidance, and all academic staff are available for one-to-one consultation during weekly 'drop-in' hours. Additionally, all students are assigned a peer mentor and we have dedicated departmental social and advocacy groups for first-generation scholars and mature students.
