Student support was highly rated by students in recent reviews of the university. There is help for everyone, with a Careers and Employability Service, as well as Disability and Wellbeing centre to help students with their individual needs.
Every student has access to the free and confidential Counselling Service at any time during their studies, enabling them to discuss any problems they may be facing with an independent and impartial listener.
There are additional Student Life Mentors on site to help new students settle in during the first year of their studies, and a Student Finance team on hand to offer financial support and advice on things such as Student Loans.
Students attending the university will find it easy to identify and access any support services they might need, with regular information and reminders via the Students’ Union or the university administration. The University of Suffolk is committed to ensuring that every student enjoys their life at Suffolk and achieves their potential.
University of Suffolk students on Whatuni say:
“First rate! Already had a meeting to discuss special needs etc, things have already been put into place.”
“The support offered by our uni is also very good. Speaking from experience, I see a counsellor once a week at university and they are absolutely fantastic.”
“So far I think the support is really good, we are always made aware of all the various support available to us and we are always reminded of how to access these services if we need to. There are a whole range of services, both academically with the academic services who can assist in referencing, essay writing etc but also personal services such as counselling and disability support are readily available to all students.”
