Nice to meet you

Our hours do change slightly, so you can keep up to date with them on the askUS website.

We all need to make sure that we’re giving ourselves the time we need and make sure we’re taking care of our mental and emotional wellbeing. Wellbeing and Counselling are here for you if you feel you could benefit from their support.
You can complete an online referral form whenever you like, then you will be given the option to book at a time which works best for you. You can also email email@example.com or call the service on +44 (0)161 295 0023 (option 1, option 1) during business hours.

We can discuss any barriers you may be experiencing and the potential support that is available for you.

We’re also the people you need to speak to if you have a problem with student funding that can’t be resolved by your funding provider, such as Student Finance England. Note: we're not licensed to provide debt advice, but we can point you in the right direction for that.
