We have a number of support networks available to you throughout your studies and student life such as your programme leaderPersonal Academic Tutor, the Student Help Desk, Student Support Officers and research support.

Academic Advice Managers

Academic Advice Managers work in partnership with departments across the University to ensure that you receive the best possible student experience. They are available to provide you with guidance on a variety of matters including your course and potential progressions, assessments, regulations and professional course requirements.

If you need to apply for mitigating circumstances, a study break, a course transfer or want to withdraw from your course then you will need to contact an Academic Advice Manager to discuss this and ensure that it is the best option for you.

For further information on which Academic Advice Manager to contact, please view the Undergraduate or Postgraduate handbook.

Library and Learning Services have dedicated teams to help support you in your studies. The Academic Librarians can help you to find information for your assignments and the Learning Development team is able to help you with developing your academic, mathematical and study skills. Both the Academic Librarians and Learning Development teams can advise on referencing.

The teams offer workshops, drop in sessions, tutorials and online resources.
