Things not going so well?

University life is, and should be challenging. However, doing a degree is not always easy, especially when events you weren’t expecting interrupt or affect your studying.


To a certain extent, we would expect you to have anticipated any issues which are likely to arise and to have discussed them with University staff as early as possible.

However, when unexpected issues arise it can be hard to know what to do or where to go for help. You might be overwhelmed or worried that you are the only one feeling like this.

If this is the case then it’s important that you talk to someone as soon as possible. University staff will try very hard to support you though your course if they are aware that there are problems.

You will probably find that many students experience similar issues and that staff are experienced at helping you to access the support they need to get back on track.
