Support for Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine Students
The Faculty aims to support health and social care professionals through all stages of their career, from pre-registration through continuing professional development.
We recognise that training in the area of the caring professions can be demanding and we are committed to ensuring students can access the support they need throughout their studies.
We deliver comprehensive support to students through:
- Providing extensive learning resources at our Ormskirk, Manchester and Aintree campuses and access to library facilities at a range of NHS study centres in Merseyside, Lancashire and Greater Manchester.
- Offering free, one-to-one counselling sessions.
- Well-established personal tutor support system for all pre-registration students.
- Supporting pre-registration students undertaking practice placement learning, through supervision by a named, professionally qualified person employed in the practice setting.
- Advice and support through the University’s Student Services.
Further support is delivered by:
- Pathway Co-ordinators – offering advice on pathway routes, negotiating specific pathways with students, monitoring student progression and achievement.
- Practice Education Lecturers – supporting students in practice.
- Academic leads – managing student issues relating to deadline extensions and mitigating circumstances.
- Faculty staff – supporting mentors in practice and offering advice on student support.
