Important information and guidance

You have the opportunity to become comfortable with the services and requirements of the university meaning you will begin your level 4 study in an advantageous position.

Skills Development

We have lots of ways to help you succeed in your academic journey, these include:

Libraries & Learning

Our great library service includes ebooks, journals and a wide range of online resources in addition to traditional books. We have a library at each campus and expert staff who can help you with any queries. 

Help is at Hand

We believe in supporting our students in every way possible. Help Is At Hand is a hub of information, and a series of events designed to help you get the best out of your University experience. 

Student Transition Advisors

Integrated foundation year students have direct access to a Student Transition advisor. We are here to help support your transition to university and will provide support or advice covering a range of issues from academic skills, specific learning difficulty (SPLD) signposting, homesickness and guidance to all the other services you may need. The student transition advisor will work closely with you  and your tutors through the year and may contact you at various times to arrange tutorials and support sessions. Sessions are usually informal and are designed to help you reach your goals.  

Essentially we never want you to worry. If you have a query and don’t know who to ask, come to us. If you are worried about your writing style or how to use the library, come to us. We are easily contactable on phone or email:
