Student Services

Student Services is a free, confidential service. We are here to listen and help you with any questions or problems you have during your time at Petroc.

We want Petroc to be a place where everyone is safe and able to access a range of positive experiences and opportunities. Our team has a broad range of relevant skills and experience and we know that sometimes things can become difficult and challenging, and the unexpected can happen.

If you are experiencing problems, you know of someone who could benefit from our help, you are a student who is being abused, or you're worried about your well-being or safety, please get in touch.
