Who Are We?
iSupport is an umbrella project of St George’s University Islamic Society, solely focussed on maintaining student welfare. The project is run by students and our services are open to all students, regardless of your background.
Life at university is a new experience. St George’s University has students from different corners of the country and from different parts of the world. It can be daunting leaving everything behind and starting a new chapter of your life: finding accommodation; planning your finance; adjusting your study habits. This transition may leave students feeling stressed, depressed, struggling financially, and struggling to adapt to a new learning environment. Our aim is to make that transition as smooth as possible and assist you on your journey.
What Do We Offer?
Welfare is a broad term covering several aspects: mental, social, physical, domestic, financial, spiritual well-being and much more.
1. iSupport Website Services
There are many services available at university which look after student welfare. Many students, however, may be unaware of them or unsure of what exactly is offered. iSupport allows students to access all the services from our website. Students can submit a welfare contact form describing any issues they have relating to their welfare. The form will be read by the welfare representatives who will then get back to the student with an answer directly addressing the students query or directing the student towards the appropriate professional services available at university who may better facilitate the students need.
On our website, you can also find our upcoming events, articles and other resources which you may utilise.
2. Events and Workshops
Throughout the year, we organise lecture based events tackling issues faced in student welfare. We invite well-experienced speakers who pioneer in their field to deliver presentations at university. We also hold workshops where students can learn practical skills in dealing with issues such as mental health, finance and study skills.
