Student support

Your first few weeks can be hectic - finding your way around campus, sorting out travel or childcare, developing a schedule for yourself.  We are here to support you every step of the way and can offer advice and guidance on a wide range of matters such as funding, study support, finding accommodation, library resources etc.

If you have a disability or learning difficulty of any kind, you may find learning is more of a challenge and you may require additional support. We recognise these challenges are individual to you therefore we try to ensure that the support given is designed to suit you. If you let us know as early as possible that you have a disability or additional support need, we will have more time to work with you to arrange the support required.

Your local student support officer is Cathy Steed. Find out more in our student section.

The university has a centralised support system that you can tap into if you feel the need, from advice on how to study, to assistance with a disability or counselling.  We also have a student mentoring system so you'll always have someone you can turn to – contact Aimee at studentengagement@uhi.ac.uk regarding this.
