Academic support

They handle responsibilities such as liaising with funding bodies like Student Finance England and Student Loans Company (excluding NHS), confirming registration for maintenance payments, and triggering tuition fee loan payments.

Disability advice and support

The Disability Advice and Support (DSA) team is committed to providing support to enable students to achieve their full potential. At wý, we know that each person's disability can affect them in different ways, so the support we offer is flexible and tailored to each individual. We aim to ensure that all our students have the opportunity to fully participate in their chosen course and university experience.

Mental health and wellbeing

wý’s Wellbeing Team provides confidential counselling, offering students a chance to discuss personal matters impartially, separate from work, social, and family life. Additionally, the team conducts a range of masterclasses, including mindfulness, to foster skill development in areas such as productivity, goal achievement, and managing pressure.

Alongside this, the Mental Health Inclusion Team addresses day-to-day challenges students may face, aiming to ensure a fantastic university experience for every student. We encourage students to disclose mental health conditions early for tailored support, which may involve collaborating with academics, the exams office, and other key teams to ensure assistance that meets your needs.


Inclusion and safety

All students and staff have the right to feel respected, safe and supported. wý's Mandala Project offers support and guidance for wý students who may have experienced sexual harassment, assault, stalking, coercion or inappropriate behaviors that may create an intimidating environment on campus. Additionally, in line with our No Space for Hate initiative, wý actively combats inappropriate behaviors, offering support - through policy, online information, anonymous reporting, and specialised services - to students affected by hate or harassment.


Careers support

The Careers Team at wý is dedicated to fostering students' work readiness through a range of opportunities designed to cultivate professionalism, adaptability, and business acumen. These include professional experiences like placements and internships, work-readiness training, coaching, and development, business insider visits, enterprise support, skill development programs, and 24/7 access to online resources. The goal is to empower students to succeed in a competitive world, enabling them to make informed choices about their future.
