You can also get support in person; all you need to do is ask.

The where to go pages give the details of the student services that support you during your academic study.

Whether you want to work on your maths, or develop your critical analysis or need some help with a literature search there are services in the university that can help.

If you have a disability or specific learning difficulty, there is specialist support available.

You can also get support for your emotional wellbeing. The Mental Health and Counselling Team provide a confidential, safe place to talk about whatever is concerning you, or you might want to have a chat with a Chaplain.

And don't forget the Students' Union. They can give you information and guidance on academic matters too, and they feed back your views on your degree programmes to the university.
