Student support

Course providers can offer support in many ways. As well as financial help, you might be able to get study support:
  • if you have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia
  • if you need to refresh some academic skills
  • to manage your studies around other priorities (e.g.caring responsibilities)
  • to help with personal circumstances (e.g. if you are going to uni without the support of your parents)
Additionally, if you're worried about the social aspects of university, getting accommodation, or would like help to manage your mental health and wellbeing, there are lots of options available.
