Student Services for doctoral students
If you are studying for a doctorate at Bath, Student Services can offer you advice and support relevant to your needs.
We offer advice and support including help with budgeting and information about funding support. We can also advise if you need a break from your studies or are considering leaving. Please contact the Helpdesk for an appointment or you can come along to one of our drop-in sessions.
We can be contacted via the Helpdesk or you can phone or email us. We have a designated adviser for postgraduate students. You are entitled to reasonable adjustments to your doctoral studies and these might be different from those you may have had for previous study or work, so please do arrange a meeting to discuss.
As well as counselling sessions we offer a number of groups and workshops specifically for postgraduate students including over the summer. One to one sessions are available all year around. Our counsellors have a good understanding of the pressures and challenges of doctoral study and can give you space to explore these and help you find solutions that work for you. If you have a long term mental health condition the team can support and compliment your access to NHS services, throughout your doctoral studies.
