You’ll find that starting college, making new friends and studying a subject of your choice is exciting, but it can also be a bit challenging. No one will admit it of course, but the other students on your course will be feeling just as nervous as you. Part of college life is about learning to look after yourself, making decisions and managing your time and money.
Don’t worry, there’s a range of people at CAFRE to help you any time you need support. Your Personal Tutor will be there to advise you on academic issues. Our Student Support Officer offers one-to-one advice and guidance on personal, academic and financial matters and any other concerns you may have.
In the first few days of your course you’ll take part in an induction programme during which you’ll find out about our full range of support services and the people who are there to help you.
Also please have a look at our Student Support policies and the range of support services available in the left hand menu of this page.
