Student pastoral 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 and online 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.

Face-to-face or online appointments can be made directly with your programme directors and tutors or via the programme administrator.

In the first instance, you should contact your tutor or the programme administrator. Sometimes, we will refer you to our dedicated pastoral support teams:
