How we can help you

Guide to Medical Student Support Systems

Our first priority is to offer you support for academic problems and offer advice.

We recognise that medical students are subject to all sorts of pressures and some may find the MBBS course stressful at times and we would like to emphasise that having difficulty at some time in the course is common.

Our aim is to support students through any difficult times, and we are keen to encourage students to seek help early and come to us when you need to.

Stress is common amongst members of the medical profession, and students are no exception. Exam times in particular can be really stressful for students, and we're here for you throughout. We can offer practical advice and techniques on how to help with personal organisation and revision techniques.

With the large cohorts that we are currently looking after (between 350 and 400 students in each year), we must anticipate coming across most of the health and welfare problems that affect young people. This includes students with longstanding health problems or disabilities, mental health problems, including eating disorders and depression.

The support staff are more than willing to help you and guide you to the best sources of support. We’re accessible online or on-site so feel free to book yourself in through Calendly, or drop in whenever is convenient for you! An extensive range of advisors and services to support students with academic, personal and practical problems is available.
