Issues impacting your study?

Graphic showing students at desk typing and studyingWe understand that unexpected situations can affect your studies and your wellbeing. Rest assured, we have mechanisms in place to provide every opportunity for you to thrive. These include deadline extensions, a break from your studies (know as ‘intermission’) and learning support plans to help with dyslexia, for example. Find out more about the university’s range of support.

We also have our additional consideration process, which is designed to protect you from the impact of unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances on your academic achievements.

Wellbeing support

Your Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) is there to support you with all academic aspects of your degree which aren’t related to the content of individual modules. Your PAT can give advice on things like using feedback from your module tutors and help you identify the skills you want to develop. They can also offer support with issues affecting your studies and signpost you to University support services.

Our Student Support and Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) are dedicated to supporting you with any issues that might be impacting your wellbeing and your experience with us. They will talk through your options and may direct you to specialist wellbeing services across the University.

SSGTs often work closely with your Personal Academic Tutor and Course Leaders and, with your permission, they can help communicate issues which may be impacting your studies.

If you feel like you need a safe space to talk to someone who understands, try Togetherall; a free online mental health peer community where you can safely and anonymously share how you’re feeling and get support from others. Togetherall is monitored 24/7 by trained mental health professionals and offers resources and courses, like goal setting guides in addition to its supportive community.

Brighton Students’ Union

You can also seek support from your Students’ Union, by booking a session with one of their advisors to discuss any issues impacting your studies and wider wellbeing.

Your SU officers have also been sharing their tried and tested tips and guidance for managing exam stress over on Instagram.
