Please note:

  • Wellbeing appointments should not be used for requesting EC evidence only (please contact your HUB regarding these) as we are only able to provide confirmation of attendance, unless we have been actively working with you, in which case please contact the relevant adviser directly. 
  • We advise students to arrive 5-10 minutes early for one to one initial Wellbeing Advisor appointments to complete paperwork. Appointments are usually 30 minutes long to assess your wellbeing needs. Cancellation must be given with as much notice as possible if you are offered a one to one appointment with a Wellbeing Advisor. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may lose your appointment.
