There are many reasons why you may feel it is the right decision to change your course, and the Students' Union are here to help you make the right decision for you. You might have an academic concern, such as not feeling as if the subject is for you, or there is something else you would prefer to pursue. If this is the case, it is a good idea to speak with a member of academic staff who you feel comfortable with about how you are feeling. They will be able to discuss your options with you, and the Students' Union are more than happy to set this meeting up, facilitate it and support you throughout the process.
If you feel like the workload is getting quite a lot for you, and you are struggling to understand how to be the most successful in assessments, you can book an appointment with the Learning and Development Tutor. You can access these services through Gateway on your campus, either pop in and see them in person or email at:
You may be working through some personal issues that are getting in the way of your course. You can contact the Wellbeing team for a wellbeing check-in. At the check-in you can discuss your circumstances and decide the best route forward, whether that be counselling or something else. Please contact the wellbeing team at firstname.lastname@example.org If you feel that you might struggle to meet a deadline on account of your personal circumstances, you can apply for mitigating circumstances. See the information on mitigating circumstances and how the Students' Union can support you here.
