Current Postgraduate Students

Throughout the year the department offers information, presentations and opportunities to discuss issues related to mental health and wellbeing, and disability support.  Our academics and student facing professional support staff attend training courses and are available to offer advice about the most suitable and professionally trained people or services in the collegiate university to help you or someone who you suspect may be suffering with mental health issues. 

The mental health services are integrated across the colleges, university and department to make sure postgraduate students are supported appropriately.  As a postgraduate you can approach your college Postgraduate Tutor, Wellbeing advisor/Counsellor, Nurse or MCR.  In the department you can approach your PI, the Postgraduate Education Team, Academic MentorDeputy Head of Department or any members of staff that you feel comfortable talking to.

For registered disabilities the department works with the Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre to manage and deliver the outcomes of the Student Support Documents.
