The Vice President of Wellbeing & Community focuses on issues regarding student wellbeing. This includes students’ mental, physical, and sexual health.
Every University of Lincoln student has their own personal tutor when they begin their studies. Personal tutors are there to help you on a range of issues you may have during your time at university, they can help offer you guidance or point you in the right direction to access further help.
If you feel that you can’t speak to your personal tutor, you are able to email a lecturer or member of your course’s staff you trust. They will be more than happy to listen to you and give you advice if you are struggling.
