What happens at a chat
Your 1 to 1 chat will be with a Welfare Adviser. You can choose to have your chat by phone or online using Microsoft Teams. Your chat will last for up to 40 minutes.
Our Welfare Advisers are experienced members of staff who understand university processes and have access to a wide variety of internal and external support options.
They can give information and signpost you to further services but they are not qualified to give legal advice. If your situation is complex, we may refer you to an external agency such as the Citizens Advice Bureau.
