Advice

Unfortunately, the SU is unable to support students with giving advice at the moment.  We are currently working to secure funding for a professional advice service so that this problem doesn't occur every year.

In the meantime here is a helpful list of some of the student services which can help you, what they do, and how you can contact them at the university.

Need to talk to someone urgently? The Samaritans are available 24/7, call 116 123 for free.

  How they can help Email Phone
Helpzones They can give professional, impartial and confidential advice for any problem or query, as well as being able to refer students to other services, such as the welfare team.

The Students' Union exists to support you - we know things sometimes go wrong.

Unlike some other SUs, we don't have a professional advice team so we try to signpost you to as many places as we can where you can find support.

If you have an issue that you wish to discuss, please get in touch.

If we cannot help, we know someone who can and we signpost to lots of great, proffesional services.

Check out these pages under the Advice tab and if you want to talk to someone, contact the SU's elected Welfare Officer, Asha Sutton using the form below:
