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.

Student services are always available to advise you. Some of their services include free counselling sessions and a study support team.

While we also have a student union welfare officer, it is worth mentioning that Rose Bruford College is a small college creating a close network of students and staff. This means that your programme directors and lecturers will know you well, and will also be on hand to support you through your degree.
