Support Services for Students

Contact links for Support Services

We are committed to giving you practical, emotional and learning support you need while you are studying with us at the RIAM. Our aim is that every student at RIAM thrives in our friendly and inclusive environment. 

We welcome students with additional support needs and value diversity and multiple perspectives in all that we are and all that we do.   

Our students’ safety and wellbeing is our number one priority. You can read the RIAM Child Protection, Health and Safety, Protected Disclosures, Dignity and Respect, and Equality and Diversity policies on our Policies page. Third-Level Students have access to useful resources on the Student Well-being section in Moodle.
