Wellbeing and Inclusion

Being at University is about finding your own way – but that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. We understand that there may be times when it’s not plain sailing. You have uni work and part-time jobs to juggle, busy social lives, unexpected expenses, and all sorts of life events that can get in the way.

The Wellbeing and Inclusion team has a range of services and support available to help you make the most of your time studying with us.Our team of professional staff are here to listen, offer support and guidance, and aim to point you in the right direction at every turn so you feel safe, supported, healthy and able to fulfil your potential.


Counselling and Mental Wellbeing

The Student Counselling & Mental Wellbeing team offers a range of support and advice for students who are experiencing stress, anxiety or other mental health issues due to personal circumstances or academic pressures.

Remember to ask for help if you need it. It’s better to do this as soon as you realise things are getting difficult. We are an approachable team and we want you to feel supported as we know it can make a real difference.
