Student Support

University students are viewed as ‘independent learners’. However, being independent does not mean being left on your own.

Student Support Manager

  • support for students who have a disability, medical condition or Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) e.g. dyslexia
  • support for students with English as an Additional Language (EAL)
  • support relating to mental health
  • liaising with Course Representatives and Worcester Student Union
  • advice relating to maternity leave

Academic Resources
