Welcome Week support
The support services available to students and where you can find them.
Throughout Welcome Week there will be Welcome Helpers available to answer your questions. You can find the helpers in the Holgate Student Centre.
During the first two weeks of the academic year the Wellbeing team run Welcome Wobbles sessions where you can talk in private to a Wellbeing team member about anything you are unsure of or struggling with.
These sessions offer a safe space in which you can chat freely about how you are getting on and ask for additional information or support. Sessions last 20 minutes and need to be booked in advance. You can book your session through the Student Information Desk. Read more about the Welcome Wobbles sessions.
