University Centre St Helens offers a friendly and supportive learning environment and we provide you with the tailored support you need to be successful. There is a strong, close-knit student community ethos. With smaller class sizes you will be an individual, not a number. Our highly skilled dedicated lecturers will help you to get the most out of your course. You will have lots of regular contact with them.

Support for students with a disability

We have a friendly and experienced team who will work with you and your lecturers to help you to reach your full potential and achieve your career aspirations. You can contact them to discuss any additional needs that you may have. For students who have a Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) report, this should be shared with University Centre St Helens to ensure that the recommendations for reasonable adjustments are made as required. Please contact Anne Ignatius, Learner Support Manager for further information on 01744 623260.

Libraries

Over the past year we have spent over £1 million investing in our libraries. Both the Town Centre Campus and STEM Centre Technology Campus libraries have a dedicated ‘Uni Hub’ which have been designed to specifically cater to the academic needs of University Centre St Helens students. The libraries have a substantial collection of learning resources to support your studies. Our 24/7 library of online databases, journals and eBooks means that you can study anywhere, at a time to suit you. Everyone has different study styles and we have group study areas, quiet study spaces and independent study zones in order to meet your needs. You also have access to your validating university’s library resources.
