College of Arts and Law (CAL) Wellbeing Officers

Each School within the College of Arts and Law has at least one, dedicated wellbeing officer.  Wellbeing officer are trained professionals able to provide support, advice and guidance to students across a range of academic and wellbeing challenges that prevent you from engaging with your studies and university life as a whole.  We can support you with extensions to assessed work deadlines, advice on disability and reasonable adjustments and also the wider extenuating circumstances process.  We can also talk through wider crisis or longer term problem that may be causing you a mental health challenge and help you access the wider support that is available both on and sometimes beyond campus.    Wellbeing Officers are available every day of the week via a range of different media (face to face, telephone, zoom or text chat) in order to make ensure you receive a timely response and that the service is as accessible as possible.

For further information, including access to forms and a vast array of self-help resources, please visit the College of Arts and Law Wellbeing Services CANVAS page to which you will all have been auto-enrolled.  To request an appointment, please complete the Appointment Request Form.

All face to face appointments will take place in Arts G22.  If you have been offered a face-to-face appointment, this will be confirmed to you in writing.

Postgraduate research students should in the first instance contact their home School for Wellbeing Support, advice and guidance where they can receive all of the same levels of support as any student within the University.  Kate Hands Harvey acts as the dedicated PGR contact for on-going and specialist queries so in order to ensure that you get the best support you may find that in conjunction with support from your home school, a referral is also made to Kate.
