Non Academic issues

From time to time you will experience problems outside of your studies. We can help with any non academic issue you are facing so do get in touch if you are having difficulties.

Some of the most common issues we camn help you with are:

  • Your debts - whether this involves writing to creditors or looking at debt management options
  • Student housing - we can help you get your deposit back at the end of your tenancy, sort out repairs with your landlord, help you understand your tenancy agreement, eliminate disputes over flat share bills, and talk you through ending your tenancy early.
  • Benefits - we can offer advice on claiming house benefits, personal independent payment, and careers allowance.
  • Taking legal action - we can offer advice and guidence if you need to start civil action or defend action brought against you in the county court.

If you are experiencing a problem and don’t know who to turn to, get in touch. We will always listen to you and if we can't help you we will find someone who can.
