Academic Support

When you join, you’ll be assigned an academic mentor. They will be responsible for supporting you as you begin your academic studies.

We also have academic skills advisors who can help with specific needs. Typical areas of support include assignment structure, academic writing, critical thinking, effective reading, planning work and time management.

This assistance is available in a variety of ways, including through one-to-one appointments with specialists, peer mentors and online resources.

Digital Equipment Loans

We recognise that if you’re studying at the forefront of digital technology, you may also need access to equipment away from the campus. We can provide you with a free loan of our high-spec laptops to meet your needs.

Student Wellbeing

Everybody can experience issues with health and wellbeing at some point in their life. We are committed to ensuring our students are properly supported whenever they need help.

Our on-campus student helpdesk is the first point of contact for all our students. From here, we can provide the support needed or put you in touch with our specialist wellbeing services.

Inclusion Needs

Our Student Inclusion Team offers a range of information and advice. This includes help to apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) and offering diagnostic assessments for specific learning difficulties.

Once you are enrolled as a student, we can also put extra steps in place for you through a learning support statement (LSS). It is personalised to your needs. 

Work While Studying

We can help you find part-time positions in a variety of roles, such as in our Reload Café on campus. Unitemps is a recruitment service that’s ideal for student-friendly work opportunities and permanent jobs once you graduate.

Or why not apply to become a Student Ambassador? You’ll get paid for representing the University at Open Days, UCAS events and gaming conventions.

Studying with us also gives you unique access to opportunities within the gaming industry. We are approached by many companies to support projects that will bolster your CV.

The University offers a range of financial help to eligible students. This includes support for specific groups such as student parents, estranged students and care leavers.

There are also a number of bursaries and awards available through the Horizon Fund to help students in a variety of ways.
