The Student Wellbeing Service is experienced in providing confidential support to students around issues of sex, gender, sexuality and sexual orientation.

It is always advisable to let your personal tutor or course leader know if you are having difficulties affecting your studies – they are there to help, and can offer useful advice and support. Consult your GP if you are feeling persistently low, or if your difficulties are significantly affecting your daily functioning.
