Student Welfare and Support

Student Support and Wellbeing

UCL is committed to the wellbeing and safety of our students and we try to give assistance wherever we can to ensure your university experience at UCL is a fulfilling, healthy and enjoyable one. Further information can be found on the UCL website under Current Students. UCL also offers a Psychological Service whcih can provide support for students experiencing any difficulties.

Advice and Support

We recognise that making the transition to university life from school or work is not always easy. The School promotes a community culture and does its best to ensure that all students and staff have someone to turn to when they need help and advice. All students are assigned to a Personal Advisor (Personal Tutor). Further information on this role can be found here.

London Nightline

London Nightline is a confidential listening, support and practical information service for students in London. It is open from 6pm to 8am every night during term-time. The service is confidential and free to UCL students.

Equality and Diversity

UCL is committed to respecting equality and diversity in all its activities. Further information and policies can be found on the UCL web site here. All students and staff must act in accordance with these policies, have respect for others and ensure that everyone receives fair treatment. UCL will not tolerate any form of bullying, harassment or discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or socio-economic background. Infringements of these policies by students or staff will be treated very seriously by UCL and may lead to disciplinary and/or fitness to practise proceedings.

Religious and Cultural Considerations

The UCL Religion and Belief Equality policy for students can be found here. The UCL School of Pharmacy is a multi-cultural institution which gives consideration to students’ individual needs and preferences. However, it is a secular institution where health, safety and security requirements, as well as the needs and aspirations of the academic community as a whole, are paramount. The School's Policy on Religious and Cultural considerations can be found here.
