Student support

Your programme directors and tutors will support you with any welfare needs and professional development you may require throughout your time on the Foundation Year programme.

They will be available for face-to-face meetings if you would like to discuss matters outside immediate academic concerns.

They can help you with things such as:

  • personal, family, financial or health issues;
  • advice regarding mitigating circumstances for assessments;
  • applications to the Hardship Fund.

Academic support

Academic and study support can also be obtained from your programme directors and tutors.

Appointments can be made directly with your programme directors and tutors, or via the programme administrator.
