Support Services

Coffee mornings

Once a month during term time staff from the Educational Support and Retention Officer organises a coffee morning to give mature students a chance to meet one another in a social setting. It's a great way of sharing college related hints and tips and meeting like minded people. As we are excited to welcome you all to the new Hub, the next Coffee Mornings will be held on the times & dates that are listed below. The venue will be in the Gobal Lounge on the First Floor of the Hub, which is located at number 82 on the campus map. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our office holds a dedicated Orientation Day for Mature Students for all incoming first year mature students. Orientation is a time where incoming students can meet their peers and learn about all the support services that are available to them. It is a more intimate day than Registration Day and we find that our new students feel more at ease when asking questions on this day.
