Welfare and Support

Student Welfare at DGHE is approached from a confidential and sensitive perspective. Although the vast majority of students at DGHE will not experience any serious welfare issues the College has a support system in place to offer students the help and guidance they may require during any period of hardship, stress or anxiety.

The service exists to ensure students get the most out of their time at College helping them engage more effectively in their academic and social environment and to be sufficiently free from psychological distress in order that they may achieve their full potential.

Who takes care of DGHE students?

The programme manager is the first instance for students for students, who will listen to students concerns.

The Student Welfare Officer (SWO) in turn will then assist the student in resolving the issue in question or it is felt that professional help is required the studentwill be referred on to the relevant external organisation.

Each student has a Personal Tutor who helps guide the student trough the course.

In addtion, Student representives are responsible for providing feedback on various aspects of the College and the student experience to the College and to the student body. They also expected to serve as advocates for a particular student or group of students when necessary.
