Welcome to Hull York Medical School Student Support Office
We hope that you will have a thoroughly enjoyable and productive study time at HYMS. We expect the majority of students to progress through medical school without any problems. However, we are aware that during the time you are studying with us there may be occasions when you need a little more support to make the journey that bit easier. The information on these pages will guide you through support avenues available to you as a medical student of HYMS.
In addition to having access to the student support services of both the Universities of Hull and York, HYMS has its own Student Support Office, as we endeavour to provide a friendly, supportive environment in which to study medicine. The Student Support Office is available to all students registered with HYMS, to answer any non-academic queries you may have in relation to pastoral care. We will be pleased to deal with your queries or signpost you to the appropriate support service to deal with any issues or problems you may encounter if they cannot be dealt with within the school.
