Student Well-Being

Student Support Services

The School of Chemistry is committed to supporting your experience with us. We are aware that there are many aspects which influence your well-being, and we recognise that sometimes you may experience difficulties outside the University which affect your University life, particularly your studies. If you find that you are having difficulties which are impacting on your academic studies and/or on your well-being, the University offers a wide range of support services.

If you are experiencing any issues which are impacting on your studies, we encourage you to make contact with either the relevant point of contact listed below or with the School Student Experience Officer. We can offer information and support, and, if necessary, guide you towards the university service most relevant to your needs.

Within the School of Chemistry, we have designated points of contact for all taught chemistry degree programmes, in addition to a Student Experience Officer. Names and contact details are given in the table below.
