Support at the School of the Arts


In 19 Abercromby Square you will find our dedicated reception area known as the Student Support Centre.

We are here for support starting from your registration all the way up until graduation. Some of the things you may need us for are: registration queries (including transfers/suspensions), module registration queries, timetabling queries and assessment submission.

The Student Support Centre is open from 9am - 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

The School of the Arts has two Learning and Teaching Support Officers (LTSOs) who are available to provide support and advice on academic and pastoral issues that may arise during your time at the University. They will be available for individual appointments should you wish to come in and have a chat. The LTSOs work closely with academic tutors and student support services to ensure that all students are fully supported throughout their studies.

Other forms of support we offer include:

  • A named academic advisor
  • International student support team
  • Disabilities support
  • Counselling service
  • Funding and money advice
  • Welfare team
  • Careers and employability team
  • University accommodation with live-in residential advisors

The whole Department of Music were nothing but supportive through a turbulent period for me while I was completing my degree. Every member of staff I talked to was singularly understanding and helpful. The department excels in pastoral care and provision around mental health, and there is always help available if it is asked for.
