Help and support for students

Finding out further information from the WEA:

If you need information about choosing or starting a WEA course, or progressing your learning, you can find information in these web pages or you can contact your local WEA regional office.  Some WEA regional offices have websites and all produce brochures and leaflets about local courses and studying with the WEA.  You can also talk to your local WEA branch, or your tutor, if you are already on a course.

If you need information in larger print, in an alternative format, or need us to read information to you, please ask us. Some information is available in languages other than English.  All our staff will treat requests for information, or for help, confidentially.
