Support and wellbeing

Whether you need academic assistance, career guidance, or just someone to talk to, we’re here to help.

University should be an unforgettable experience that changes the way you see the world. That's why we encourage you to explore beyond the classroom and take part in the social opportunities on offer.

You can connect with new people through events, sports, volunteering opportunities, and more.

Student Portal

Our dedicated Student Portal makes it easy to get the information you need, when you need it. From career guidance to counselling, learning support, university news to upcoming events, you'll gain automatic access to the portal upon accepting your offer.

Student Portal access for current students


When you become a student with us, you get access to confidential and professional counselling, both in person and online. These services are available for those experiencing academic, mental health and personal concerns. Counsellors can also help to connect the wider community with specialist services.
