We don’t need to tell you how great our student support is – we’ll let our students do it for us!
“I couldn’t do without my mentor, she really is amazing! My results have gone up two/ three grades!”
“My mentor is regularly on time and is always friendly, sociable and is a highly approachable character.”
“Without this support in place is I wouldn’t be near as capable with the difficulties I have and it has so far ensured I have passed 2 coursework pieces and 2 exams without any worry.“
“I have a fantastic tutor who is making me gain more confidence every day.”
“My tutor has supported me in the good times and the bad and is very helpful. Without talking to him, I’m not sure my work would be on track.”
From the very start where we carefully match you to a consultant, through the ongoing process of support – you can be confident that you will receive genuinely beneficial support for both your current and future study needs.
All our consultants are screened for their suitability to work in learning support. Many of our consultants have attended University themselves and so are aware of the challenges first hand.
“My mentor is an absolute legend. He has done everything in his power to enable me to work to my best potential, which I believe was a highly contributing fact I received a 1st in my degree.”
Need support at the weekend, evenings or in the holidays? Our consultants work ‘out-of-hours’ to provide support where and when you need it most.
“My mentor is very committed and will spend time making resources for me out of sessions. She will go above and beyond what is needed by helping me with unusual exercises and note taking.”
Based locally, our NMH Support Manager is easily available to discuss any aspect of your support and regularly visits campuses across the region to meet with students.
“I would like to thank Amano for the wonderful job you all do. I wouldn’t be at College without you”.
