Postgraduate Study


The University’s Counselling Service offers a free and confidential service to all students at the University. Professional counsellors, mental health advisers, BME counsellor and a Sexual Assault and Harassment Officer are available to talk through any personal or emotional concerns that you might have during your time at the University.

Counselling is a process that seeks to help you focus on and understand more clearly the issues that concern or trouble you. The counsellor's role is to offer support and understanding, and to listen and respond in a non-judgmental way. They will respect your values, choices and lifestyle. Counselling can help you explore your feelings and discover what lies behind whatever seems troubling or confusing. Counselling can also help with making decisions, choices or changes that are right for you.

More information, as well as a wide range of self-help resources and access to groups and workshops, some off of which are specifically tailored to postgraduate students, is available from the Counselling Service’s website.

I have used the Counselling Service at the University who provide excellent support and welfare services and I found the counselling services to be incredibly easy to access.
