There is a wide range of student support on offer at Harper Adams, both academic and welfare-based. If students are feeling stressed or finding university life difficult to cope with for any reason, they can visit the student wellbeing officer for confidential help and advice. The wellbeing officer can help identify any academic or disability support (such as extra time on assignments or exams) students may need and – for students struggling financially – can even give access to short-term loans.
They can also refer students to the university’s on-campus BACP-registered counsellors and mental health advisor, who provide both private sessions and group workshops on topics such anxiety management and resilient thinking.
There is also an on-campus chaplaincy service and an on-site doctor, who students can book appointments with during term time.
