3. Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy provides personal, emotional, communal, spiritual, faith and belief support, for all members of the University and is used as much or more by people of no religion, than by people of particular faiths. We have a commitment not to proselytise, and to support all people to flourish.

4. Student Wellbeing Service

The Student Wellbeing Service is part of a range of health and wellbeing services that is available to all University students. We work collaboratively with colleagues across the University to provide proactive and reactive wellbeing support for students. This includes proactive preventative work for all students as well as providing specialised support for higher-risk students who have more complex needs and who present with at risk behaviours using a short-term case management model.

All Schools and Deaneries will have Wellbeing Advisers who you can speak with if you are experiencing any wellbeing-related issues that are affecting your health, wellbeing, studies or personal life. The Wellbeing Advisers can then provide you with advice and guidance, and will also be able to discuss and link you up with our other University services, as well as signposting to external agencies.
