The Link is the Students' Union's one stop shop for free, independent help from fully qualified and professional Welfare Advisers with problems and issues around finance, housing, immigration and much more. There's also a great range of part-time vacancies designed to fit around timetables while our Academic Advisers are on hand with support should students encounter issues with the academic side of student life and, where appropriate, will help should a student face disciplinary action from the University.
There are a total of 30 student representatives across the University. Each School has two welfare representatives and three school representatives. Both provide support and guidance to students in a variety of areas, helping to resolve issues and ensuring that they are connected with the appropriate support services and can seek out opportunities for improvement.
