Who we are and how we can help?

The Progression and Support Team (PST) work closely with your programme team and other student support services to support your academic progress.

We can support you to:

  • understand key University policies and processes (such as Extenuating Circumstances and Attendance & Engagement policies)
  • understand your results and the implications for your academic standing (progression decision)
  • confront challenges that may be affecting your academic studies
  • discuss making changes to your study – such as:
    • Taking a break from your studies (interrupting your study)
    • Changing your course of study (transferring to a different programme)
    • Adjusting your mode of study (switching between full-time and part-time, or vice versa)
    • Leaving the University (withdrawing from your studies or transferring to another institution)
  • Support with my studies

We understand that, sometimes, students experience circumstances beyond their control which can affect their ability to study. If you are experiencing any difficulties which are affecting your engagement, attendance or assessments we're here to support you.
