You’ll join a nurturing community and receive exceptional support during your studies

We’re here to help you with any of your learning support or pastoral needs and to answer any questions you have about the issues that affect you.

Student support officers are your first point of contact and offer a completely free, confidential and supportive service that is designed to fit in with your needs. You can ask us about anything from registering with local GP surgeries to how to plan and write essays or to request to speak to a counsellor. We offer a wide range of support to students with specific educational needs and/or disabilities.

We also provide academic skills sessions and special seminars based on your learning requirements, helping you to identify and achieve your study goals. You will also have a personal tutor who will provide you with academic advice and support.

Norland subscribes to Togetherall, an award-winning digital support service available 24/7 that you can use to seek confidential support to help you deal with everything from everyday stresses to major life events.

If you’re an international student, you’ll also have access to your own dedicated International Student Manager to provide specific support both before you arrive in the UK and during your time at Norland.

Here to Hear scheme

Here to Hear (H2H) is a peer support programme that was created at the request of students. One of the benefits of talking to H2H mentors is that students can seek support from other students who may have already experienced some of the challenges that they are now facing. H2H mentors have specialised training from the Student Support team so they are able to offer listening support, as well as signposting to helpful resources.
