Student Support Service

The Student Support Service at UEA provides students with support for a wide range of academic and health issues.

Student Personal Adviser

All ENV students are allocated a member of academic staff as a Personal Adviser.  Your Adviser is the first point of contact in matters relating to academic work and your course of study. Your Adviser can also offer you help and guidance if you find that you are experiencing any difficulties during your time here as a student, and can also offer advice if you find that you are experiencing circumstances that may have affected your performance in any part of your assessment. ENV has a Senior Adviser,  Dr Parv Suntharalingam, who has overall responsibility for matters related to student welfare within the School.

Disability Liaison Officer

ENV has a Disability Liaison Officer, Dr Irene Lorenzoni, who provides staff and students with a point of reference for advice and guidance about disability issues and support. The Disability Liaison Officer liaises regularly with the Student Support Service in relation to general policies and procedures and individual requirements.
