Contact details



The School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences Student Support Officers are Colin Arthur, Stephanie Fong, Michael Gray, Sarah Larios, and Anna West. We are here all year round to offer you support and guidance. The Student Support Assistant is Jamie Sutherland. From the start of the 2020-21 academic year in September 2020, as a response to COVID-19, our Student Support team is available digitally.


  • We are working Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm BST.

    We hope you’ll understand why we aren’t able to offer routine in-person appointments at the moment. However, if you get in contact, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can; we cannot answer phone calls at this time.
