Disability Support

Disability Support  

Unitemps are here for every student at Staffordshire University all year round. Working closely with the Student Support and Well-Being team, we employ Student Support Workers to work with students who may be facing difficulties while studying. Whether that be with their academic work or with their mental health, Unitemps are here to help.  

We offer students two main types of support whilst studying, working with a Specialist Mentor (ASC & Mental Health) or a Specialist Study Skills Tutor (ASC & SpLD) or both.
