Welcome to the Handbook
The university and school encourage you to enjoy your time with us and succeed academically; the University and the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences view the provision of pastoral support for each student as essential.
This support can cover most issues, be they academic, financial or personal. It is simply a matter of you, the student, asking for help before things get out of hand.
All our staff are here to support and assist you should you have any difficulties. Find out more about the help that is available.
The Sussex Learning Network have funded the development of this website as a resource to improve study skills within the area of bioscience in Sussex.
