The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

Within the student hub, our student support team provide the following services:

  • counselling, advice and guidance on mental health and wellbeing
  • specialist learning support
  • advice on student finance issues.

We have a preferred accommodation provider who offers Plymouth College of Art accommodation for our students. They endeavour to work with students who require year-round accommodation to find their perfect home.

We have a small but very active and friendly students' union, which offers a number of different activities for new students to help them settle in.

There is also an ever increasing number of clubs and societies, which have events throughout the year and all are welcome to join. It is a great way to meet new people and try out new things!
