About us

Student Support Service aims to ensure that students’ personal and emotional needs are met. We are aware that many students’ academic performance is negatively affected by difficult personal circumstances. 

Our aim is to support ALL students in a holistic manner.  To do this, we provide academic support in the form of study skills and time management workshops; and psychological support for students experiencing personal and psychological difficulties.

No problem is too big or too small and every student matters to us. 

Book a counselling session

Students can book either a 30 minute or 60 minute one-on-one therapeutic session with a trained psychologist. Bookings must made using the booking system.

Book an LEC assessment

This is a computerised assessment and diagnostic tool which identifies barriers to academic success. It also serves as an early warning system for students.

Book a career development session

The career development officer visits HC, PMB & WVL campuses each week. You can book a session to acquire skills and tools that will help you enter the working world.
