The Advice Centre is your first port of call if you are experiencing difficulties during your time at university.
We can help all students at Imperial College London, Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research .
We also help:
- Recent graduates who have an issue concerning their studies at Imperial e.g. an ongoing complaint
- Students who have a confirmed offer from Imperial
- Students on an interruption of studies
Our Advice is:
- Free - you don’t have to pay to get advice
- Confidential - we won’t tell anyone that you’ve come to see us and we won’t share with anyone else what you tell us unless in exceptional circumstances (see confidentiality policy)
- Impartial - we offer the advice that is best for you, we are not influenced by any other organisation
- Independent - we are not part of the Imperial college so our advice is not influenced by them
- Non judgemental - as long as you are a student we will offer the best advice we can give you and we will not judge your position or the next step you decide to take.
We will support and guide you but we will not make decisions for you. We will make sure you have all the information you need to be able to do that for yourself.
