The service you receive is professional, confidential, equitable and normally free of charge.

Support for your studies

Studying for a PhD or Masters is more intensive than undergraduate study. You can get more out of your studies by taking advantage of a host of training courses that help you develop the skills you need at postgraduate level. For PhD students we have a dedicated programme of free skills courses that will help you with your research and future career.

Health and welfare

The health and wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance. We provide an extensive range of services to ensure your wellbeing while you are here.

Student Services

Our Student Services Centre provides support and advice on common topics such as immigration and visas, funding, health, well-being and disability.

Graduate Centre

Our Graduate Centre offers a space for all graduate students to meet friends, study and relax. The Graduate Centre includes computer and printer access, Wi-Fi, a kitchen, and a meeting room.

Student learning zone in the city centre

We are currently creating a new student learning zone in our Manvers Street building with opportunities for independent study, group work and skills training in a convenient city centre location. The facility will also feature a new hub for student-facing services. This is due to open in October 2016.
