STUDENT WELLBEING & MENTAL HEALTH
We recognise that college life can be an exciting step for many students but it can also present some challenges. Student Services aim to provide students with positive support, information and advice on key issues that can affect a student's wellbeing at college.
Student Services staff are your first point of contact if you need help or information regarding full-time courses, personal issues, money matters including fees and financial worries, finding employment and university applications to name a few areas.
