At BIMM, your wellbeing is a priority.

If you find yourself struggling, it’s always better to talk to someone. Our dedicated wellbeing advisors are trained in listening skills and can offer a safe, confidential space to talk through any challenges you’re facing. Whether it’s concerning your mental health, adjusting to life away from home, financial concerns, personal issues, or simply needing someone to listen, they’re here to help.

We offer advice, guidance, and referrals to our counselling service through private, one-to-one wellbeing tutorials.

Our dedicated Learning Support teams offer active and effective support to students impacted by neurodiversity, disabilities, special educational needs, learning differences, and mental health conditions.

We’re committed to ensuring equal opportunities for all students to succeed in their studies, providing tailored support to address any additional challenges they may encounter.

We encourage you to disclose your condition as early as possible in the application process so we can work with you to put in any support you might need before you arrive.

We’re here to help if you’re making the leap and joining us from another country.

Before you arrive, our International Team can answer questions you may have to help you feel more at ease. A member of our Student Ambassador team can meet you at the airport and help you settle in if you’d find that helpful.

BIMM students have access to Togetherall, a digital mental health support service which is available online, 24/7 and is completely anonymous so you can express yourself freely and openly.

Mental health professionals monitor the community to ensure the safety and anonymity of all members.

In addition to Togetherall’s online community, you will have access to a wealth of useful resources and can work through tailored self-help courses covering topics such as anxiety, sleep, weight management, depression and many more.

The BIMM University Wellbeing Strategy sets out our direction, priorities and goals as we continually develop a supportive and inclusive culture across the university. This ensures that every student feels that they are able to thrive, regardless of any challenges they may face during their academic journey.
