How to make an appointment with a Student Adviser
Our staff will make an appointment with a Student Adviser for you. Contact us by phone on +44 (0)117 32 85678, or in person at one of our Information Points.
The Student Adviser role
The role of Student Advisers is to provide you with information and advice on a wide range of course and programme related matters, including:
- How university regulations affect you
- Options relating to module choice
- Assessment regulations
- Withdrawal and transfer to other programmes
- Extenuating circumstances
- What to do if unforeseen personal circumstances affect your studies or assessments*
- Fees and student funding
Student Advisers can also refer you to other sources of specialist support.
*Please note: if an impairment, medical condition, mental health issue or specific learning difficulty impacts your studies or assessments, please get advice from a Disability Adviser by making an appointment at an Information Point as described below.
What to expect from the Student Adviser service
Student Advisers will not make decisions for you or make judgments about your conduct or circumstances. Records of advice sessions are kept separately from your main student file.
The Student Advisers are members of university staff who work within university regulations, policies and procedures. The advisers cannot act as advocates for you in a dispute with the University or in student conduct hearings. If you need independent support and advice you should contact the UWE Students Union Advice Centre.
Advisers will endeavour to provide a confidential interview space, particularly if requested by a student. Advisers will follow the Student Adviser Privacy Statement. Note that there may be circumstances in which an adviser needs to share information about you without your permission and these are set out in the Privacy Statement.
