University and study issues
The SRC Advice Centre can offer advice and information on a number of university or study issues.
You can appeal by letter against various decisions that affect your study if you believe you have grounds for appeal. The rules relating to appeals are listed in the University Calendar. See also the advice centre’s Guide to Academic Appeals.
Bullying and Harassment
If you think you are being bullied or harassed, whether by another student or a member of staff, and want to know what to do next, this section has some useful information and links for you.
If you want to make a formal Complaint, the procedure for this is listed in the University Calendar. The workers at the Advice Centre will also be able to give you information, work with you in the preparation of your Formal Complaint letter, and if necessary represent you. Please see our Guide to Effective Complaining.
