Meet The Edinburgh Student Support Team
The Edinburgh Student Support Services Team are here to support you throughout the year with learning support, help with funding issues and your mental health and wellbeing. They’re a friendly bunch, so why not get in touch via EdStudentSupport@sruc.ac.uk to chat through any issues. You can also get in contact with them via Moodle or via your Year Tutor if you fancy chatting to them first.
Find out more about each member of the team below.
