Faculty Student Advice Service

Our Faculty of Health Sciences Student Advice Service provides friendly, private advice and support to all students within the Faculty of Health Sciences. The service exists separately to any academic programmes to give students the confidence to speak openly.

We recognise that most students will encounter circumstances that may impact on their studies at some point during their time at university. Our advice service works to help students identify the issues impacting on their wellbeing and outline the services within university and wider community that can best support them.

We’re happy to talk through anything that is troubling a student. Examples of some common topics include a change to your physical or mental health, problems with relationships, funding difficulties and managing work/life balance.

  • Your course is listed on our faculty pages but you're currently intercalating into another faculty at UoB or into a course at another university;
  • Your course is listed on our faculty pages but you're currently taking a period of suspension from your studies.
