University is about finding your own way – but that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. At the University of York, Department of Health Sciences, we offer an extensive range of support services to help you fulfil your potential and make the most of your time here.

Whether you feel like you’re thriving or in need of a helping hand, our dedicated Student & Academic Support Service (SASS) is here to listen, offer guidance and point you in the right direction at every turn.

We provide a responsive and personalised service that tries to be inclusive and accessible to all of our students. We play a central role in contributing to outstanding teaching, understanding the students experience of higher education, the student voice and facilitating better learner engagement and success through the provision of high quality advice, guidance and training.

The Student & Academic Support Service in the Department of Health Sciences are at the very heart of the students support network whilst at university. This includes acting as a first point of contact and a referral “gateway‟ to the wider array of student support available within the University to help you on your student journey.

Personal and academic support is for all students, not just those facing issues or in need of help; it is integral to the student experience and should empower students to succeed in their journey and to achieve their full potential.

We look forward to welcoming you!
