Studying for a degree is a life-changing experience and we never want you to feel overwhelmed. We have people here to help you cope and deliver and arrange for any extra support you may need.

Disability Office

Disabilities, long-term medical conditions, and specific learning difficulties are never barriers to success here at Bloomsbury Institute.

Specially trained staff are here to advise and support you. And we’ll work with you to agree any adjustments that might be required, including exam arrangements, and liaise with academic departments to make sure your needs are met. To find out more about the support we have for students with disabilities, visit our Disability Office at the bottom of the page.

Our Disability Office is based in 7 Bedford Square. You can drop by and speak to our Disability and Wellbeing Advisor or book an appointment with her by emailing disability@bil.ac.uk.

Inclusivity and wellbeing support

Students often live on limited incomes and need to balance work, family and friendship commitments with their studies.

We recognise emotional and mental wellbeing as a priority. It’s so important for us all to find effective ways of coping.

We’ve made a dedicated Student Guide to Mental Health and Wellbeing and we run a Wellbeing Programme every term.

We also offer support and advice for students who are pregnant and/or have a family to support. Head to the links at the bottom of the page for more information.

And if you’d like to talk about any concerns you have, or any support you need, our Centre for Student Engagement, Wellbeing and Success (SEWS) centre at 7 Bedford Square have an open door policy. You can pop in and speak to a member of the team Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm.
