As you settle into university life, you can rely on our award-winning Student Futures Support and Development team. Whatever the problem, there’s always someone you can turn to at Warrington.

Student Futures Support and Development at the University has been acknowledged as a ‘five-star’ department for the quality of its services by the British Quality Foundation in 2014, and for its ‘Innovation for Excellence in Student Experience’ at the CUBO awards in 2015.

Academic Support

All students have access to our modern learning facilities and study spaces on campus. Here you’ll find the resources you need to complete group work, assignments and presentations effectively – including PCs, Macs, e-books, journals and sophisticated digital software.

If you’re completely new to your subject, don’t worry. All undergraduates are assigned a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) who can offer advice and guidance relating to your course, whenever you need it. 

We also have Study Skills advisors who are there to help you reach your academic potential. They provide advice on everything from grammar and referencing to critical thinking. 

Wellbeing and Mental Health

If you’re struggling with a personal matter that’s affecting your time at Warrington, or you need a friend who can listen and provide impartial advice, we’re here for you. You’ve always got someone to talk to. Our welfare services include international student support, counselling, disability support, mature student support, peer mentoring and much more. Speak to a member of our award-winning team at the Students Centre in the Martin Building. Here you can find out more information about what’s available, or book an appointment with Student Futures Support and Development team. If you have any questions, get in touch via student.welfare@chester.ac.uk

Additional Support

Other types of support are also available, which are separate to those provided by the Student Futures Support and Development team. These include: 

Student Representation

All student matters are heard and voiced by our Students’ Union. They work closely with the University to ensure that student needs are met. What’s more, Student Academic Representatives (StARs) are elected by you and your peers, to voice any issues you may have regarding your course – be that teaching, assignments or resources.

Pastoral Care 

Whether you’re looking for a quiet space to think, or you’re in need of some advice, the doors at our Chaplaincy are always open if you want to pop in for a chat.
