How we can support you

Academic support

Most taught students have a personal tutor to meet on a regular basis. Your tutor will support you with your studies and can direct you to a range of academic support. Postgraduate research students are supported by their supervisors. Find out more about what academic support services are available.

A safe environment

We provide a fair and safe environment for studying and socialising. We have our own police officer, and our security service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Wellbeing and support services

Being at University can be exciting but there may be times when you struggle. It can be difficult being away from your home, family and friends. At Bristol, you are not on your own and there is always someone to talk to. We have a range of services to support your health and wellbeing while you are with us.
