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.

Student Services can offer doctoral students advice and support via our Helpdesk and our specialist teams.

Wellbeing Service

We're here to offer you help and support with all welfare and wellbeing issues.


If you have an academic problem such as an issue with your supervisor, or need advice on an emotional or practical issue, you can talk to a Wellbeing Adviser about anything. Come along to one of our daily drop-in sessions or phone or email us.

Student Money Advice

If you're worried about your finances we can offer advice specific to doctoral students.


Disability Service

If you need advice or support around a disability, health condition or specific learning difficulty please contact us for an appointment.


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.

Counselling and Mental Health

If you are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed there are ways we can help you.


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.
