Welfare and Finacne

Strode's College has two available schemes to support students from low income households. Information about the application process is available in Student Services or by emailing welfare@strodes.ac.uk.

The Student Services team can also offer advice and guidance relating to additional support that can be found from outside of the College for those who require it. For those in immediate difficulty, we are able to offer short term emergency loans to students.

Travel Discounts

The cost of travel can be expensive. The Student Services team are here to support students in making smart choices when it comes to the travel options. In addition to looking at financial support, we can help students to ensure they are utilising all discounts available, either through season tickets, child fare discounts or a combination of travel options

NUS Membership

Strode's College is part of the National Union of Students or NUS, as it is more commonly known. From just £12 students will receive an NUS Extra Card which offers savings on over 160 brands such as ASOS, New Look, Jack Wills, Accessorize, Pizza Express and Odeon (to name just a few).

Counselling Services

We all need someone to talk to sometimes and our experienced Counsellors are here to talk to students about anything that might be causing them concern.

Appointments are made during the College day around student's timetables and can be made by either emailing counselling@strodes.ac.uk or by posting an appointment slip in our confidential mailbox in Student Services (based in the Student Centre).

S4L

The Support4Learning team are here to guide and assist students in a number of areas from examination arrangements to dyslexia and dyspraxia support. Based in the Learning Centre, they can offer a quiet, calm space but can also see students who need support on a one to one basis. In addition, throughout the year they offer workshops covering areas such as:

  • Stress and time management
  • Revision and study skills
  • Written essay skills
  • Students should visit the Learning Centre or email nlevy@strodes.ac.uk for information.

 

Safeguarding

Our dedicated Safeguarding Team are here every day to ensure the wellbeing of our students. If students or parents / carers have concerns at any point, the team can be contacted in Student Services or by emailing safeguarding@strodes.ac.uk.

Sexual Health and Relationship Advice

Each week we run a free condom service, supported by the C-Card campaign. Students can register to collect free condoms, register for STI testing and seek relationship guidance. More information about C-Card is available at http://c-card.areyougettingit.com/
