Advocates are available on each campus Monday to Friday only. They aim to respond to all emails within 24 hours. During peak service times, where advocates have appointments booked all day, reply times may be a little longer. Your query will be responded to, so please do not send multiple emails or phone calls. Advocates will respond to you! Once you have made initial contact with an advocate, you can contact them directly for the duration of your case.

Advocates can assist with all manner of concerns and queries of students. If you need advice on any issue, we can either assist you or refer you to internal or external providers who are best suited to help you.
