Find out what support is available at your university or college.

1. Support for Students

We realise that alongside your academic life, you will be managing your day-to-day life, including money and budgets, living in a new city or country, and your relationships, friendships and family responsibilities. From time to time when juggling such demands, specialist advice and support is invaluable for all of us. Our friendly and specialist advisors are here to offer support, whatever your needs and circumstances. Our work is complemented by digital platforms which means that, whether you study from home or on campus in Newcastle, London or Amsterdam, we are here for you.

The services that we provide complement those provided within your academic faculty. Your faculty is a very important source of advice and information about your course and studies. However, for many types of support – around disability issues, faith issues, counselling and mental health support, finance and funding, welfare issues and international student support – the University has also set up a range of central Student Life and Wellbeing services, to ensure that you have access to trained professionals with specialist expertise.

2. Counselling and Mental Health Support

We all have mental health, as we all have physical health and, like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. Mental health difficulties can range from the worries and anxieties we all experience as part of everyday life, to other longer term problems that affect our daily functioning. These feelings often pass, but sometimes they are hard to cope with.

If, during your time as a student here, you feel you might want or need some support with a personal, emotional or mental health issue, you can access support from Counselling and Mental Health Support. Our service is available to all enrolled Northumbria students who are resident in the UK and you will just need to sign into your student portal and complete our online registration form – it just takes a few minutes.
