How we’ll support you to succeed

Whatever the world throws at you, we want to make sure that you receive a high-quality student experience at LSBU. You’re never on your own and there’s always someone to talk to.

I loved being at LSBU. The staff are very accommodating to any questions and queries you have. All emails are promptly responded to and all issues you may have are dealt with in a respectful and confidential manner.

The team can provide answers to questions ranging from all things finance (e.g. budgeting, independent living) to wellbeing support, and arranging one-to-one appointments online.

Wellbeing Support

The Mental Health and Wellbeing team offers a safe space for students to talk about what is on your mind. The University also has a counselling service, run by our partners Mind, which can be accessed virtually.

In addition to one-to-one support with our advisers, you'll be able to access a host of resources, including 24/7 access to digital emotional support with a range of programmes to choose from. We will also provide online resources for developing and increasing emotional resilience and programmes on managing money worries.

Visit our dedicated Mental Health and Wellbeing section for further details of the support we offer.

Disability and Dyslexia Support (DDS)

We’re committed to ensuring that students with any disability have equal access to all teaching and learning – and an equal opportunity to show their skills, reach their potential and excel in their chosen field. We will continue to work closely with academic teams and relevant colleagues to ensure that students requiring DDS are fully included in the learning experience and can demonstrate their skills and knowledge, whilst also promoting inclusive practice across the institution. This can include one-to-one support, advice, funding and adjustments to learning.

Any student with a disability, including EU and International students, can register for support with DDS. If you’re joining us soon, you don’t need to wait until you’re enrolled to get your support organised.

Contact disability@lsbu.ac.uk now for more information and to arrange an appointment. Or visit our dedicated Disability and dyslexia support section for further details of the support we offer.
