Support and networking

Our Student Advisers at the Student Hub provide advice on a range of issues, including student finance, disability support, and academic progress issues. You can phone or email them or log on to the weekly online chat sessions.

See our health and wellbeing pages for advice on looking after your physical and mental health. There are a variety of organisations who provide help and support.

You can contact your college team for help. Online and distance learners are members of Wentworth College.
