Pastoral Support and Wellbeing
How difficult will I find the work? Will I make friends? How will I eat well on a student budget? These are just some of the questions and concerns you might have ahead of starting your time on the island. But whatever you need, you’ll always find advice and guidance within reach, and support will be available throughout your time in Jersey.
The JICAS team will always be on hand to provide pastoral guidance. We have a team ready to provide academic, social and mental wellbeing, as well as colleagues in Exeter to help make your study here in Jersey as smooth and easy as possible.
There is also a friendly and dedicated Student Life team on campus that can provide you with support and counseling services.
