We also run several themed sessions during term time. They allow you to meet staff from support services across the University and find out how they can support your studies.

We also provide you with access to help and guidance on how to study most effectively during your time here. This includes help in areas such as mathematics, academic writing and language. 

Student Voice

We seek feedback from our students to identify areas which we can develop to meet your needs. Although it is not always possible to implement every suggestion, your feedback is very important to us and we respond whenever we can.

An example of this includes the commissioning of digital skills sessions. It enabled our students to learn about areas including Google Analytics and WordPress. 

Academic Representatives are students who represent your academic interests. They work with University staff to create positive change for our student community.
