Student support

We strive to provide student support services. Whatever help you may need, we have an entire support network to help you.

Student Services Centre

The Student Services Centre is a focal point for all our specialist support, welfare and health and wellbeing services. If you are not sure which team to talk to, try here first. Our staff are friendly, helpful and very experienced.


Financial Support Team

The Financial Support Team (FST) provides support and advice to both current and prospective students. The team offers advice about:

  • financial help available
  • debt
  • funding for migrant workers
  • welfare benefits
  • budgeting.

If you have any previous study at Higher Education level, we advise you to contact the team before starting your programme as this may affect your funding entitlement.


Support for care leavers

The FST also provides a dedicated support service to all care leavers and you will have a dedicated member of staff to offer any extra support you may need.

The University offer a bursary to UK students who have been in care for a specified period of time (not available for students on NHS funded courses). If you need further information contact the Financial Support Team.


Childcare facilities

Our purpose-built Children’s Centre on campus provides full-day care places for babies and pre-school children. It also runs playschemes during the school holidays. For more information visit the Kids in Bloom website.


Religion

As you might expect in a city of this size, there are places of worship for virtually every religion and faith and we can help you find them. At the University we have Chaplains from the leading Christian denominations who are based in Faith Express and provide pastoral care and support for all students and support Christian societies in The Guild.

Faith Express is the centre for faith information on campus including information about world faiths, local events related to faith, student faith societies and about finding a place of worship in Liverpool. Other faiths such as Baha’i, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism also have societies within The Guild. There is also a dedicated Muslim Prayer Room located on campus in the Sydney Jones Library.
