Student Help

  • Support and Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) are dedicated to supporting any issues which may be affecting your wellbeing whilst at the university. They are a great source of information and advice on issues that might be impacting your studies and personal life. New students will be introduced to their SSGT in the first few weeks with us. You can find out more about your support system on our website.
  • Personal Academic Tutor – (PAT) these are academic staff assigned to help you with support for all academic aspects of your degree, which isn’t related to a specific module. You will be assigned a PAT at the beginning of your degree to help you develop skills to achieve your goals, such as guiding you through assessment feedback from all of your modules. PATs work closely with your SSGTs to give you all-round support.
