Students talking

Student support

Everybody struggles sometimes. Each of our students has access to a network of academic and pastoral support mechanisms to help them grow as a person and a professional through their studies, and to guide them to additional help in times of need.

Our Student Monitoring Sub-Committee oversees student progress and engagement, identifying and supporting students struggling to meet the demands of the course.

Pastoral support

Pastoral support helps our students take care of their physical, mental and emotional health to ensure they are able to fully engage in their studies and emerge a healthy and resilient veterinarian.

Academic support

Academic support may be as simple as helping students complete the right forms for an absence, or as complex as helping students to develop their mindset or make the most of a resit opportunity.

Student to student support mechanisms

Our students are hugely supportive of one another.
