Advice & Support

We offer impartial, free, and confidential advice on a range of issues.

How can we help?

We can offer advice on any issue you face as a student and if we can’t help you; we will put you in contact with someone who can.

We offer advice which is independent from the University of Dundee. This means that we can support our students with anything, academic appeals, private housing, complaints about the university etc.

The advice we offer is free, independent, and confidential. We do not make decisions on your behalf or tell you what to do. Rather, we will help you explore the issue and help you to understand the options. Only at your request will we act on your behalf.

Please read our user agreement to find out more about the advice we offer and what you can expect.
