    Oxford Brookes NMH team includes Specialist 1-1 Study Skills Tutors and Specialist Mentors. By providing these services in-house, we are able to ensure that students receive the highest quality support. 

    All Band 4 NMH Specialists have full working knowledge of the University’s processes and systems and access to dedicated space across all our sites, and can therefore meet the needs of the vast majority of our students. Our Tutors and Mentors meet or exceed the qualification and professional body requirements for DSA registration. For more information about the services we offer, please visit our webpages on Specialist Tutors and Mentors

    In addition to the DSA funded Band 4 support workers, our NMH Team also provide note takers and other non-specialist support workers which are no longer funded through DSA.
