✶ 5 support services to help you whilst at university ✶

Leaving your home, friends and family to join university can be a daunting and challenging time. You have to quickly adjust to taking care of yourself as well as making the step up to higher education, and this can cause difficulties for many students. Luckily, all universities have support services dedicated to helping students with a variety of issues. Here, we check out the top 5:

Financial advice
One of the biggest differences between living at home and joining university is having total responsibility over your finances. Not only will this be the first time many students have a significant amount of money in their account, but it’s also the first time they will be responsible for so many payments – rent, bills, food etc. This can lead to students mismanaging their finances, which can negatively affect your studies and increase stress. Luckily, universities offer a range of financial services to students, from scholarships and bursaries to workshops and advice on how to manage your money.

Counselling
University can be an emotionally turbulent time for many students, and without your family for comfort this can have a negative effect on many students’ quality of life. Luckily, all universities offer free counselling which can help students deal with bereavement, mental illness, academic stress, family issues, confidence issues, relationship difficulties and any other problems you may experience as a student. So if you ever feel the need to talk to someone, get in touch with your university’s counselling service and they will be able to help.

Learning and academic support
The step up from A-levels to university is a big one, and this means students often struggle with adjusting to new academic demands. Luckily, at university you will have access to a range of additional tuition, workshops and tutorials that will help you develop your academic skills, such as academic writing, revision techniques, presentation skills, library support and lots more. Using this support can help improve your confidence and ability when to comes to participating in classes and completing assignments.

Disability service
Lots of university students have disabilities, and all UK universities have services and professionals dedicated to supporting disabled students. Universities provide academic and personal support to students suffering from a range of disabilities, including dyslexia and other learning difficulties, long-term illness, autism, sensory and mobility difficulties, and all types of health conditions. Disabled students can receive advice on course-related adjustments, special provision for examinations, and assistance navigating campus, along with a range of other helpful services.

English language support
This one is mainly for international students, but it’s definitely one of the most important services if English is not your first language. Even if you’re fluent, studying at university level in a foreign language can be particularly testing, as can actually living and conversing in that language on a day-to-day basis. Luckily, universities provide a range of English language help, such as tuition, workshops and courses. This can help you improve your proficiency, bring your English up to an academic standard and also improve your overall university experience by increasing your confidence in speaking English.
