Student support

Academic support
We know that things such as assignments or exams can seem intimidating, which is why our course tutors ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible preparing for and completing any academic assessments on your chosen course.

Your wellbeing can affect your learning. Should you ever need to talk to someone confidentially about issues in your private or College life, we have a dedicated counselling service where our trained members of staff are here to help.

Careers advice
A part-time course can help you to change your career or enhance your current job prospects – and our expert careers advisers will provide you with all the information and impartial guidance you need to make choices about your training and work.
