The Student Support Coordinators in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences provide academic and pastoral student support services for all students across the Faculty.
We are here to help with anything from academic advice, such as helping you choose your modules, through to any personal issues you may experience. If we don't know the answer to your question, we will know someone who will.
I studied for a degree in Sociology and Social Policy at Durham University, during which I was very involved in Student Welfare. After a period of travelling, I did a PGCE and was a Primary School teacher for over 11 years. I then made the switch to University work, working in HR at Oxford University before coming here to work with students once again.
It's my job to make sure that students are well supported throughout their studies. I can refer students on to other services within the University; such as the Wellbeing Team, Upgrade and Brookes Union Advice Service. I help students to apply for Mitigating Circumstances if they need extra time on an assignment, or to take time out if they have a reason for needing to pause their studies.
We also help students with navagating University systesms such as PIP and moodle and generally making sure your programme is correct!
We support students who have any concerns or worries about anything in their lives, not just Uni. So please, reach out to us if you need any help at all.
