We take the health and welfare of our students very seriously. To enable a student to achieve, we feel they must be happy and healthy, both emotionally and physically, so we have a wealth of experienced staff on campus and a good network of support agencies within the community.
Support is offered through the Health and Welfare Officer who will deal with your concerns in a sensitive, confidential and non-judgemental way. The Health and Welfare Officer also organises a number of health events throughout the year including Lifestyle Days, Wellbeing Days and flu vaccinations, and arranges for other health-related talks for students.
Every student has a course tutor or personal tutor who is available to give advice and support, both formally through the tutorial system and informally through our open door policy.
Residential students are expected to register with the local doctors' surgery. Appointments for residential students and transport to appointments will be provided by the College if required.
The College has a zero tolerance towards drugs and will deal quickly and formally with anyone found involved with drugs. The College is a no smoking campus but provides designated areas for smokers. Stop-smoking guidance is available on a one-to-one basis from the Health and Welfare Officer.
The College Student Services team can advise on the most appropriate local services available to you should you have any concerns or wish to speak to a healthcare professional.
