Support for PGR Students

Information for postgraduate researchers

Postgraduate research can be stressful at times. To support students to manage their wellbeing, the University provides a variety of services. The fully accessible Health and Wellbeing Centre is based in Bristo Square and houses the Student Counselling and Disability & Learning Support Services, the University Medical Centre, and an independent Pharmacy. It offers professional one-to-one consultation rooms and a wellbeing lounge for students and staff. The Chaplaincy  offers a variety of wellbeing support options including mindfulness, tai chi, a PhD book club and the 24/7 Listening Service.  Each School or Deanery has a dedicated Wellbeing Adviser to support all cohorts of students (from the Code of Practice for supervisors and research students)
