University College Birmingham supports the needs of widening participation students, whatever their background. We can help via:
Academic Skills Centre
The centre offers a range of study-based help delivered by a team of specialist lecturers. Any student with specific learning needs, a health condition or a disability can get extra support. This might range from proof-reading assistance (provided by English Language Support) to additional support in the classroom or lecture hall.

At University College Birmingham, mentors don’t teach or tell learners what to do. Trust is essential – and the partnership can be great fun, too.

Wellbeing and counselling
The University provides practical support and guidance on a confidential basis through its Counselling Service. Counsellors are trained to be impartial and objective regardless of social or academic factors.
