We provide a range of support services and facilities for all students.
The Counselling Service is free, confidential and voluntary. Counsellors can help students with:
- personal skills such as motivation, time management, exam preparation, oral presentations, working in groups;
- understanding the way the University works, interpreting 'official language', knowing who to ask about what;
- dealing with difficult personal situations.
