Welcome from the Student Advice Service to what must be the weirdest start of term in living memory!
What is the Student Advice Service?
We provide information and advice on any student funding questions and problems you may have, whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate – for example:
- Problems with your student finance provider (e.g. Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland and the Student Awards Agency Scotland)
- The financial implications of taking time out from your course, repeating part of your course and leaving your course
- Sources of additional income
- Extra help that’s available if you estranged from your parents or a care-leaver
- Budgeting advice
- What to do if you’re running out of money
- How to deal with debts
- Hardship funding to which you might be able to apply
- Advice on social security benefits such as Universal Credit and PIP
- The financial side of life after graduation.
If you have a money-related problem or question then please do get in touch with us – if we can’t help we’ll know who can.
The Student Advice Service also has a funds team, who administer many of the University’s hardship funds
We are a confidential and non-judgemental service – we won’t lecture you or tell you what to do, but explain your options to you.
Due to the COVID-19 situation the ways to contact us are:
- By emailing us – firstname.lastname@example.org – we always respond swiftly!
- By phoning us – 01273 642888 – weekdays between 10am and 3pm
If you feel a money problem brewing then please do contact us – the sooner you get in touch the better chance there is that we can help you solve it.
Look forward to hearing from you,
