Student Support

Degree Level Study

We’ll make sure that your university experience is the best it can be

University isn’t all about learning, it’s the whole experience. It’s about collecting unforgettable memories, gaining life-long friendships and equipping yourself with the skills required for a successful and happy future.

Our campus organisers and support teams are here to support you throughout your time with us, whether it’s joining a society, having a student voice, or dealing with the ups and downs of university life.

We will support you in every way we can so that you can get the most out of your degree.

Student Union

When you join us, you’ll automatically become part of our Students’ Union. That means you’ll be able to use various resources, join societies, take part in social activities, and gain access to funding to enhance your learning.

Bruno and Melissa are our campus organisers and look after our students in Hastings, Eastbourne and Lewes. They are always on hand to talk to you about your studies, student life and all the things you can get involved with during your time with us.

You can read our Student Protection Policy below.


We're serious about studying and that's why we've created dedicated areas for you to focus and learn.

Our Learn Resource Centres are full of computers, quiet spaces, books, e-journals, and other resources for you to research, write, and reference.

Support is also available if you need additional help due to a disability, medical condition, mental health or specific learning difficulty (see below).


Our dedicated Additional Learning Support team can inform and guide you throughout your studies, or during your transition to Higher Education. Our professionally trained and experienced team are committed to removing any barriers that prevent you from learning.

They can provide information and advice on accessing support for needs resulting from a range of difficulties including: Autism, mental health and well-being, physical disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairment, and hearing impairment.

Specialist SPLD tutors are registered to deliver to students receiving Disabled Students Allowance for non-medical help at the Hastings campus. You can find our rates here.
