Student support

Highly-rated support services

We know that studying part-time, on top of your work and domestic commitments, can be a big step, especially if you are returning to study. You need excellent facilities and you might need help and advice on a wide range of issues. If you do we run our Student Services Department to provide all sorts of services.

Disabled students

The University welcomes applications from disabled people. Applicants are admitted solely on their academic ability and their ability to benefit from the course they've chosen.

If you have a disability, specific learning difficulty or mental health difficulty, we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible because some support arrangements take time to implement.

Student Services offers information and advice on entitlements, facilities, specialist equipment, access and exam provision, and can negotiate arrangements with other agencies or parts of the University.

We can carry out a needs assessment which is used to get the funding for any specialist equipment and support you need.

IT and computing facilities

We have computer facilities throughout the building. As a student you will have access to email and internet facilities. Many facilities are available on an open-access basis, including printing services at reasonable rates. Free Wi-Fi internet access is also available across the campus.
