University is meant to be challenging, everyone finds things tough during their studies even if they don't admit it. Extra support is always available throughLEAP Online - a full guide to study skills from preparing a presentation to writing a dissertation.
Speaking to your Personal Tutor about your difficulties means you can access course specific support, contact them by email or see if they have drop in sessions outide of lectures.
Many students wonder if their course is the right one for them. That's perfectly fine - the only way you'll find out is by talking to people about it as there are is a range of support available across the University.
The Students' Union also has dedicated Societies for Disabled Students which are set up and run by students with disbabilities, such as the Autism Society. You can gain even more support through these networks.
We all need a good chat sometimes to share our worries and feelings - drop into the Students' Union to meet a friendly face and talk, or do the same by booking in with Student Services to access the support available at the Life Lounge or you could visit the Chaplaincy.
For whatever is causing you to think about dropping out, you can drop into the SU. And if we can't help you, we know who can!
