Careers advice and support
In need of help? Come to one of our Advice Centres to talk to welfare, education and careers advisers, counsellors and the work experience team. All our advice services are available to you if you're a current student at South Thames. If you're not a student, you can still get education advice. All advice is free.
We have two Advice Centres - one at Merton and one at Wandsworth. Ask about advice at the reception or Advice Centre at your campus.
If you're based at Tooting our team are there on certain days. Phone 020 8918 7777 to make an appointment through Student Services. You can also drop in.
You can talk to our welfare advisers for confidential and impartial advice as well as help with practical problems. We advise many students every year with these common issues:
- Welfare benefits
- Financial help and dealing with debt
- Childcare and health
- Referrals to specialist community services.
Focus on problems in your personal life in a confidential and non-judgemental setting.
As you work through what's troubling you with a counsellor you'll find you have more energy to focus on your studies.
Whatever your situation we'll do our best to support you and help you complete your course successfully. There are many reasons you might want to come to us - stress, relationships, bereavement, sexuality or abuse and more.
Many of our students find counselling incredibly helpful but the decision is entirely yours -not your tutors, parents or other students.
When the time comes to think about your future there's lots of help on hand.
Turn to our team of careers advisers for confidential and impartial careers advice on:
- University research and UCAS applications and personal statements
- Career choices
- Financial help at university and applying for loans
- Job hunting - application forms, CVs and interviews
- Employment and training
- Comparing overseas and UK qualifications
You don't have to be a student with us to get education advice - this service is available to current and non-students.
If you're unsure about your options and want some expert advice, our Education Advisers are on hand to help. You can speak to them at our Careers/Education Adviser Drop-In at Wandsworth from 12-3pm Monday to Friday.
