Student Life and Wellbeing

Wiltshire College and University Centre is committed to the wellbeing of its students and is aware there may be times when you need support and assistance with your studies or personal issues. The College provides a number of services to support you whether it be with Tutors, Wellbeing Advisors, counselling or our Wiltshire College Active Team.

Enrichment

Your personal tutors will run a series of events including fundraising, guest speakers and pop-ups to promote a safe and respectful culture in college and  raise awareness of wider community issues such as substance misuse, sexual exploitation, equality and diversity, keeping safe on-line, safe and healthy relationships and  radicalisation and extremism (Prevent)

Wellbeing Advisers

Each campus has a wellbeing adviser to support you with personal, social, health and wellbeing matters on a day-to-day basis. The wellbeing advisors can for example break down problems into simple choices to help you decide what to do next.The Wellbeing Advisor may signpost you to other support services as appropriate.

with day to day
ups and downs
when I feel
confused or upset.
