Support and wellbeing

We are committed to supporting postgraduate students and we are aware that there may be occasions when you may need a little more help to make your journey that bit easier.


A stimulating and supportive environment

When you join Hull York Medical School, you join a close-knit community. Our aim is to ensure you get the most out of your time at medical school, and that you are supported throughout your postgraduate studies.

Our postgraduate programmes are intensive and challenging but ultimately hugely rewarding. Our programmes develop you to become a self-directed learner – and therefore a lifelong learner.

We recognise that there may be times when you need additional support to help you manage academic or personal pressures, and we are here to help.

Supporting you to thrive

Hull York Medical School Student Wellbeing Team

We are committed to delivering a high standard of support to all students, whatever their stage of study and location.

Our Student Wellbeing Team have expertise in supporting postgraduate students and can help signpost students to support services within the Medical School, in our parent universities and external agencies as appropriate.

Open Door Mental Health Practitioner

We believe the mental health of our students is of the upmost importance, and we advocate our students and staff to actively look after themselves and each other. We have a dedicated Mental Health Practitioner here at Hull York Medical School, and students can refer themselves directly to the Practitioner for confidential advice and support.

Student representatives

Each of our postrgaduate programmes has a student representative, who gather feedback from their cohort to discuss with staff at the Staff Student Committee and School Management Board. They work collaboratively with staff at these groups to suggest and implement positive improvements, working to support the Medical School in improving our students’ experience.
