The advisers within the Learner Development Service act as a contact within the University for current and prospective disabled students. The role of the Learning Development Adviser is to provide confidential information, advice and support to students about the resources which are available to them, both within the University and from other external agencies.
|Faculty Student Support Officers
Each faculty has a Student Support Officer (SSO) who provides study skills support for all students within that faculty. They deliver both individual and group study skills sessions. You can book a one to one appointment to discuss specific difficulties or attend a study skills workshop session. Also, they offer advice and guidance on general issues related to study and university life. If appropriate, they can refer you for specialist support.
