Help with your course and career
When you apply, you’ll be invited in for a skills assessment. This isn’t an entrance test but will give us an idea of the level you’re working at and if you might need any additional learning support. At this appointment you will also meet a Student Liaison Officer who can help you choose the right course for you and will answer any questions you may have. You can also come and see us before you apply if you would like support on choosing the right course for you. The Student Services Team will continue to offer non-academic support throughout the year as follows:
Help with student finance
We offer advice as well as a financial support scheme for full-time and part-time students. You can liaise with members of the Student Finance Team every day between 10am -11am and 2pm - 3pm, or speak to a Student Liaison Officer any time. Just pop into the Wentworth building, or give us a call.
