We have a range of courses and resources designed to support students at all levels with the transition to and through University. The majority of our provision is embedded, what this means is that you're most likely to encounter our support through your programme of study within your course Moodles.

We support:

  • Induction and orientation for new undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • Student success via our On Track mentoring programme
  • Wellbeing and community-building through peer-to-peer activities

In academic year 2023-24 we will be launching a new suite of standalone courses and resources to support you at every stage of your studies. All students in the College of Social Sciences will have access to these courses and topics that will include:

  • Tackling Imposter Syndrome
  • Uncovering the "Hidden Curriculum"
  • Effective Strategies for Independent Study



The Student Experience Team provides the above support for all students at the College of Social Sciences.

All students can also get further support from the Careers Service and the Student Learning and Development Service.
