Student Supports at IADT
The Student Experience team and the Student’s Union are available to offer support to all IADT students across the 2020/2021 academic year. Due to the current pandemic, some services may operate remotely at times throughout the term, however this will not impact the quality level of support available to students.
One-to-one appointments can be facilitated online and on campus in line with social distancing guidelines. This year will be a little different to any other year and we urge students to seek supports as soon as difficulties arise, no matter how small, so that we can help support you through these unprecedented times.
