    Dedicated Student Support for Students in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

    The Student Support Coordinators in the Faculty of Humanities and Social 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.

    This is a confidential and non-judgemental service. We have regular Office Hours (see our PIP page links below for more details) and you're welcome to drop in, to email or to make an appointment for a time that suits you. Student Support Coordinators specialise in particular subjects. However, if the person you want to speak to is unavailable, go and see one of the others. You can also find the answers to common issues and frequently asked questions on the Student Support Portal.
