The Students’ Union provides impartial advice to any students who need support with any University policy/regulation. We’re not a University department, and that means our advice is completely independent.

If you don’t know the exact process that relates to your circumstances, just answer these quick questions and we’ll direct you to the right place.

  • Online Quick Query appointments: Every day from 10:00 – 12:00, from January 3. Book for a 15 minute appointment here. You can only book 7 days in advance and are for students who need same or next day advice. You are likely to get a quicker response by emailing us.
  • Emailing us: Email with as much detail as possible and we will always get back to you within 2 working days, but normally can provide advice the same day you email.
