The Student Advice Centre is your go-to advice service in the Students Union currently working digitally to provide you with resources and advice during this period of isolation. Our 4 advisers are well-versed on a range of subjects, so if you need help on Housing, Finance, Academic Issues, Mental Health referrals, or anything in-between; then check out our latest Covid-19 FAQs and if you still need to speak with us, we are currently operating via Microsoft Teams (call, video or chat) appointments to deal with any queries.

Please let us know of any accessibility requirements when booking in and we can organise something in time for your appointment (for example a sign language interpretor).

Confidentiality

Info for parents

We know you worry about your sons and daughters whilst they are at University, however we are a confidential service and therefore we cannot discuss any student details with parents. Furthermore, as we are a student service unfortunately we are unable to provide direct advice to parents or any third party.
