As the year progresses, you might find you need some help, so it’s important to make sure you know exactly what the Advice Service at ARU Students’ Union can do to help you. So what can the Advice Service give you advice on?


Uni problems

You might be having a rubbish time with your course and you want to find out more on what you can do. Or maybe there’s a tutor you don’t get on with, or you want some advice on a failed assignment. Anything related to your academic experience we can help you with, or refer you to someone who can.


Thinking of dropping out

If you’re thinking of dropping out, you need to think about it before you make any sudden decisions you might change your mind about. We can help you work through your problems, as wanting to drop out may be because of another problem that can be easily resolved.



Perhaps you’ve had a fall out? Or you need some advice on a tricky family situation. We’re here to help you with what is stressing you and stopping you from achieving your best at university.


Mental Health Issues

If you’re struggling with a mental health problem, and you’re not sure how to go about getting help, make an appointment to talk to one of the advisers, and we can help you.


Financial Issues

If you’re in a panic because you’re suffering financially, and you don’t know where to turn, we can help you. We can direct you to any bursaries or money you may be entitled to, and any services that can help.


Accommodation problems

If you’re having an issue with your accommodation and you don’t know what to do about it, we are here to help. Book an appointment, and we can help you.



If you have a complaint about a member of staff, you can come and see us to talk about it. We can help you with your complaint if that is the best course of action, and we can see if there are any other options available.


Anything else that is causing you to stress

No problem is too small or too big. If it’s making you worry, then you should come and see us about it. If you’re stressing, it means you’re not able to study at your best. We are here to help you, and we will refer you to someone who can if we can’t.


If you need some advice, book an appointment here.


We’re here to help you!
