Team SMF is part of Team Student Support and consists of two Student Counsellors and a Coordinator Student Ambassadors. They coach students with a functional impairment and they are responsible for the university's policy for this group of students.

They work closely together with the Student Advisors, Examination Board, the Examination Organization, Diversity & Inclusion Office, Real Estate & Facility Services and Team Student Wellbeing.

Team SMF is here to help you, but we can only do this once you have indicated what type of support you need.
