This page outlines the options and support available to students that find out that they are pregnant whilst at University. People can have very different reactions and feelings towards the news that they are pregnant, so this section of the website offers factual, unbiased information about all the options open to them and the support available. Don’t forget there are services on campus such as the Counselling Service and the Student Welfare Service if you want to talk things through with someone.
The Student Welfare Service is here to help ensure that students have the opportunity to be fully informed on any or all the options available regarding their pregnancy so that they can make their own choice based on what they feel is best for their situation, and support them in their decision whatever that may be. We also offer free & confidential pregnancy testing if you haven’t yet taken a test. Our services are confidential, honest, unbiased and non-judgemental.

[Warning: Whilst there are a number of other external organisations that advertise pregnancy testing and help & support pregnancy, some of these organisations have been known to be actively biased in favour or, or against, one of the above options and may not necessarily give you a fair or non-judgemental service. Thus you may want to stick to the services listed on this website.]
