Support to study policy

The University is committed to supporting students’ wellbeing and recognises that a positive and enabling approach to the management of physical and mental health is key to student learning and academic achievement. The Support to Study process is a supportive one with the aim of achieving the best possible outcome for students.

The University defines Support to Study as a student’s ability to engage with their programme of study, with reasonable adjustments where necessary, in accordance with the expectations set out in the University’s Regulations. A students’ engagement should not impact negatively on their safety or wellbeing or that of others and should offer full opportunity to meet the learning outcomes of their programme.
