Student support

De Broc School of Business prides itself on being a place where students from all walks of life can learn in a friendly, collegiate and open environment. You'll be assigned a personal tutor who will be able to give you personalised career advice as well as support your learning ambitions. You will also have access to The University of Law's well-established student welfare support system, with counselling and pastoral care available in all De Broc locations.

Learning Environment

Teaching and learning at De Broc is delivered by a faculty whom have worked in business and also as academic lecturers. Our undergraduate programme, for instance gives you a wide understanding of business in your first year and as you progress you have the option to specialise in your desired area of interest.

At De Broc our teaching and learning methods are designed to make you career ready with excellent practical skills. You will gain these skills by actively engaging in your learning.  We teach you in small workshop groups – no lectures for the first 2 years, because we believe that students learn best when they are closely involved with their tutor and other students in a small group setting.

We also use the most up to date resources in business education, such as the Financial Times in the class room so that you have access to the right kind of information. We ask you to actively find out about business issues; to bring that information back into the classroom and supported by your lecturer explore and discuss those issue as a group. At De Broc, you will be challenged, but supported. You will have to provide evidence for your point of view; present to staff and other students; engage in debates with business people that are invited in to meet and work with you; speak to people in business and undertake research and write reports around real business issues. 

Disability Support Centre

If you have a disability, medical condition, mental health disability or a specific learning disability, our Disability Support Service will be able to provide information, advice and support before and after the start of your studies. We recommend that you tell us as soon as possible about any support needs you may have, so that we’re able to make any necessary adjustments to help you.

You’ll be asked to provide medical evidence or an Educational Psychologist's report to support your request for adjustments to be made. Where appropriate the university can arrange for you to have an SpLD assessment with the Educational Guidance Service, there will be a £75 student contribution fee.

Our Disability Support Service can also advise you on applying for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA). Please contact us on 01483 216657 or e-mail for more information about our support services.
