The pressure of studying and being in a new environment can impact on your relationships and general wellbeing. If you are facing difficulties and are unsure on how to deal with them, or are struggling to cope with any aspect of your life, you could find that talking things over with our Student Advisor can help.
The Student Advisor is here to provide general guidance about any problems you may experience as a student, and it can be important not to leave it until things get really bad. Your Student Advisor can also refer you for private counselling if this is something that may help to support you. Any appointment is confidential.
The Student Advisor's office is located within the SEDO Department on the first floor. The timings are from 9am to 5pm. There is an open door policy (especially for emergencies) but if students want to make sure to get an appointment they should request it by writing to Sara Feeley.
Conversations with the Student Advisor will be confidential and will not be discussed with anyone else without your permission. The only time that this would not be the case, would be if your Student Advisor was concerned for your safety, or thought that you, or someone else, were at some sort of risk. The Student Advisor would always strive to discuss this with you, but in rare or extreme cases this might not always be possible. All of the services provided are consistent with the Interim Wellbeing Policy.
