We aim to help you when problems occur and assist you in knowing and exercising your rights. We do three things on a personal and private basis:

  • We listen to the problem
  • We assist you with advice on the options you have

For more information and/or assistance on the advocacy service please contact a student council representative or the Student Experience team. Students can contact the Student Council by phone (leave a message): Windermere ext. 6620, Bongard ext. 5584.
