Faculty Student Support with Valerie Harding

UWTSD ranked in the top 5 in UK for student satisfaction in teaching quality in the 2019 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide

The Faculty Specialist Academic Coordinator, Valerie Harding looks after all the students within the Faculty with any additional needs. Support is very different at UWTSD, it is very discrete, completely confidential and we organise things to suit your timetable.

  • It’s important that students take up the support that is available because, what we find is that the students that do take up that support, do far better than they would have had they not taken it up.
