Student Advice Centre

Who are we?

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).

The Student Advice Centre is independent from the University; so we can offer fully impartial, professional advice. We aim to help you find the best steps you need to take in order to remedy any situation. We follow a strict confidentiality policy, so you can be open and honest about any problems.
