Support for Taught Masters Students

Our Student Support Office welcomes enquiries from all current students on taught Masters programmes in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC).

What we can help you with

We are your first point of contact for all administrative and pastoral matters including:

  • absences, authorised interruption of study applications and withdrawal

  • factual reference letters for banks and letting agencies confirming your student status
  • Welcome Week enquiries
  • advice on curricula, regulations and procedures
  • special circumstances applications
  • student progression
  • learning adjustments

In the 2021 to 22 academic year, as a response to COVID-19, many of us are working on a hybrid basis - a mixture of on-campus and digitally.

Our working hours are Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm BST.

Please email us in the first instance, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
