Study Support With Your Degree

Everyone learns in different ways and what’s the best method of studying for one person may not be for another. Therefore at University Centre Sparsholt we pride ourselves in having a specialist team to assist our degree students with their studies.

Our dedicated Degree Study Support team can help with:

  • Study skills tailored to your needs
  • Specialist ASD mentoring
  • Exam access arrangements
  • Advice and guidance on DSA process and assessments required to ensure that you receive the help you need.

The HE study support team are available from 8.30am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

If you feel you may need some support with your studies please do get in touch with the team:

Email: HELearningSupport@sparsholt.ac.uk

*Please note it can take up to two months to complete an assessment and gain approval for DSA support so it is important that you arrange this before starting on your degree.

Higher Education Wellbeing Support

Studying for Degree in a subject that you are passionate about is exciting, but it can be daunting too. We know how important it is to stay focussed on your studies but recognise that life can get in the way sometimes. At University Centre Sparsholt you will have a dedicated Tutor who will support you through your studies and can refer you to the Wellbeing Team if needed.

The Wellbeing Team, based in Student Services is a one stop shop for all student enquires such as travel, funding, gym membership, lost property and sports hire. Additional support is available for any worries or difficulties you have which are affecting your time at UCS.

These are examples of what we can do but come and see us with any issues or queries you have – we are here to help!

• If you have a diagnosed mental health condition, we can agree a support plan for you so that you can come to college and achieve your chosen qualification.
• If you have an unspent criminal offence, this does not necessarily prevent you from studying at Sparsholt. We can usually agree a support plan for you so that you can come to Sparsholt and achieve your chosen qualification.
• We offer confidential one to one sessions to talk about any issues you may have and together, we will agree an action plan.
• We can give confidential advice on sexual health matters. There is also an on-site sexual health clinic held once a week.
• We have a college nurse on site for our residents or those with complex medical needs, as well as a counselling service and careers advisor.
