Find out what support is available at your university or college.
1. Learning Support
We aim to provide students who require support with the tools to enable them to work to their potential and demonstrate the true level of their abilities as an undergraduate or postgraduate student.
It is hoped, too, that they will benefit from their experience with Learning Support at the University in such a way that they will be enriched with tools, strategies and improved levels of self-confidence that will also serve them for the rest of their adult lives.
Your first point of contact is likely to be the Disability Advisor. Students may request an interview to discuss their needs or concerns at any point during their course.
2. Financial Support
Financial support for eligible students includes University bursaries and scholarships, the UWTSD Hardship Fund (for students experiencing financial hardship) and the HEFCW part-time undergraduate fee waiver scheme (for part-time undergraduate students in receipt of certain DWP benefits.
3. Counselling Service
The University has a well-established, professional Counselling Service. All our Counsellors work in accordance with the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The Counsellors endeavour to create a welcoming environment and to listen in a non-judgemental way to enable you to talk about your feelings and experiences. It is a collaborative process concentrating on what is important to you. Counselling goes at your pace and according to your needs.
On the Carmarthen and Lampeter campuses, counselling is available in both Welsh and English.
