Student Support Office

The Student Support Officers (SSOs) provide advice, support and guidance to all the students in the School of Divinity.

The Student Support Officers for Undergraduate and Masters students are Kate Munro and Karen Duncan. They can advise you on a wide variety of matters throughout your studies. They offer guidance on rules and processes, can help you to access other services in the School and University, and can give advice on any questions or concerns you have about your degree, health or wellbeing. If you have a question and are not sure who to ask, contact your SSO. If they can't help you themselves they will help you to find someone who can.

You can get in touch with Kate and Karen at the dedicated email address, monitored Monday to Friday, 09.00-16.30:

Current Undergraduate and Masters students can access full SSO contact details and information on all support services in Divinity via the SharePoint sites.
