Rainbow in Lockdown


We are committed to the wellbeing of our students and staff

Especially in these difficult timeswhen it can feel overwhelming, stressful or isolating.

There may be times at University when you need to speak to someone about an issue, no matter how big or small. Perhaps you have an issue you cannot discuss with friends, family or your tutor.

Here at POLISwe have Wellbeing Advocates who can help. Whether it's helping you find the support you need or providing a confidential listening ear.
