HE Support

HE support is available in Learning Centres across HoW College provided by the HE Hub.

Everyone needs a little extra help at some point in their HE course. Maybe your academic skills are a bit rusty or studying at this level is new to you? Perhaps you have lots of demands on your time and need some help to manage your studies? Maybe you have a learning disability like dyslexia, a physical disability, a sensory impairment or a mental health difficulty. No matter what your reason, the HE Hub is available to help with an understanding, supportive and (if required) confidential service.

HE Hub staff offer in class sessions on a range of academic skills topics as well as providing one to one support, workshops and a virtual learning environment in the form of the HE Hub Moodle page. The Hub is also your first point of contact for assistance and guidance if you have any kind of disability.

if you require support either before starting or during your course please contact hehub@howcollege.ac.uk
