Following Government advicebout the current coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic our Student Advisory & Wellbeing teams are currently not able to offer in person appointments. We are delivering our support services online to meet the continuing needs of students at this particularly challenging time. This means we have transferred to remote, digital services with an offering of 1-2-1 engagement through MS Teams, Skype or email.
We encourage you to monitor the student intranet and our social media channels for further updates and changes as lockdown eases.

Our online, digital services will continue to evolve and develop as the situation changes and we are planning for a return to campus ahead of the new academic year.
We recognise that change to usual processes and support networks and a feeling of uncertainty is very challenging for students and that there is a heightened anxiety within many of us at this time. You may find our blog with advice on pandemic related mental health and wellbeing needs useful.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your support needs or concerns.
Stay well and stay safe.
