Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) are excited to announce a new partnership that protects our students and the things that matter to them. From the 1st of August 2020 all students, both current and new, will be provided with the BGU Student Support Package.

Students will have access to 24/7, confidential Mental Health and Wellbeing support from Health Assured to help them through any of life’s issues or problems.

Advisors will be available 365 days a year offering students over the phone support or structured counselling for a range of issues including:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Family issues
  • Financial wellbeing
  • Relationship advice
  • Medical information
  • Consumer advice

Health Assured’s qualified counsellors use a practical approach in supporting students. They offer space and time to talk about concerns and provide guidance and mindfulness techniques that will help in the present.

All support is within students’ control and available when it suits them best, meaning whatever they need and whenever they need it, help will be on hand.

In addition, the package will provide all students living in accommodation owned by BGU with an insurance package designed to protect the things that matter to them including:

  • Room contents cover
  • Computer equipment (eg. desktops, laptops, tablets)
  • Mobile phones
  • Audio equipment, DVD & video players, computer consoles and hard drives
  • Valuables including jewellery & watches
  • Credit/debit card fraud

This insurance package, along with the 24/7 support, will available at no cost to students.

More information on both these new services can be found on the BGU Student Support Package web page or by speaking to a member of our Enquiries and Admissions teams.
