Student Support

Academic Support

Riseholme has often been praised for the level and quality of support that it gives to all of its students.

Specialist support is available for people with diagnosed additional needs, through to less formal support to help students on every level of course. We can assist with everything from understanding assignment briefs to working out percentages!

We can also support with equipment such as visual stress equipment (i.e. overlays), dictaphones and speech to text software.

To discuss individual needs, please contact our Learning Support Manager:

College (Further Education)

The college offers a range of support, which is tailored to the requirements of individual students. This can include in-class support, assignment support, study skills and access to Directed Study Workshops. Students may also be able to loan a range of specialist equipment for the duration of their programme of study.

The team consists of Learning Mentors, Supported Learning Assistants and an Exam Access Assessor, to ensure students get the support that they need.

University Centre (Higher Education)

The college is committed to providing support to students who require additional support to aid them in their studies. The Study Skills team can provide this through drop in sessions or pre-booked 1:1 sessions.

Students who require more formal support may be eligible for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
