Accessing the Advice Service

UWLSU Advice Service is still available to support you with all your academic issues ranging from missing an assignment to being called to a Fitness to Practice Panel. We can help you!  Whilst the service is running remotely, we will aim to give you a call within 1 working day. To be added to our queue to speak to an advisor please email with your contact number and query or call 02082312276. 

To find out more information about UWLSU Advice Service and what we can specifically support you with please check out our Advice Support page.

Buddy Scheme 

This scheme is to help students connect with one another. Buddies provide peer-to-peer support. We are aiming to connect you to a student who has similar interests to you in order to facilitate sharing tips/knowledge/stories and provide general support for one another. 

The Buddy scheme also provides support and a listening ear to students. You can also receive a weekly call from a SU staff member who will check in and see how you are doing. 

You can also be signposted to different help and support at the University and Students' Union if you require it.

If you are interested in finding a buddy, please fill out this form and we will be in touch:
