Student Support

Degree Level Study


The College will provide you with a range of services to support you whilst you are studying for your degree. The University of Brighton will also work with us in providing additional services and support such as the Brighton Students' Union.


East Sussex College provides study areas and library facilities with books, e-journals, computers and photocopiers. You can also take advantage of the University library facilities for research and reference.

Support is also available to students who need additional help due to a disability, medical condition, mental health or specific learning difficulty (see below).

Study skills sessions will be held to support students and equip them with the skills necessary for success at this level.


Our dedicated Additional Learning Support team can inform and guide you throughout your studies, or during your transition to Higher Education. Our professionally trained and experienced team are committed to removing any barriers that prevent you from learning.

They can provide information and advice on accessing support for needs resulting from a range of difficulties including: Autism, mental health and well-being, physical disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairment, and hearing impairment.

Specialist SPLD tutors are registered to deliver to students receiving Disabled Students Allowance for non-medical help at the Hastings campus. You can find our rates here.
