West Thames College Services for Students
As a full-time student at West Thames
College you will have your own Personal
Mentor who will see you each week to guide
you through your studies, and discuss any
problems which may arise. We take a cooperative
approach to the assessment of your
work and encourage you to contribute to discussion.
This service provides specialist assistance and
courses for those who need help to improve
their writing, oral and numeracy skills for the
successful completion of their college course.
Help with basic skills is also available.
This service is available to anyone who is
undecided as to which course to follow. It is
very much a service for the individual,
whatever your age, helping you to select the
best option to suit your circumstances. The
service includes educational advice,
guidance and support, including a facility for
accrediting your previous experience – the
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). The
Admissions Office is open Monday to Friday
9.00 am to 5.00 pm. All interviews are
confidential and conducted in a relaxed and
friendly atmosphere. Evening appointments
are available on request.
The College Bookshop stocks a wide range of
books, covering aspects of all courses,
together with a good selection of stationery.
It also supplies stamps, phone cards, blank
videos and computer disks. The shop is open
at times specified In the Student Handbook in
the mornings, afternoons and evenings.
When students are weary from study and
want the chance to relax and enjoy
themselves with friends, they can participate
in a number of recreational activities.
Depending on demand, we offer a range of
sporting activities including football,
badminton, basketball, table tennis,
volleyball, weight training and aerobics. For
the non-sporting students we offer a
debating society, video club, hair and beauty
sessions, as well as a range of creative
activities. Suggestions for activities from
students are always welcome.
This confidential service is available if you
have practical or personal difficulties during
your course of study, whether of a financial or
personal nature. Our Student Advisors can
help you directly or put you in touch with
someone else who can give you the help you
