As well as all the fun elements of coming to university Bucks Students’ Union are here to help and support you too. In all cases we will listen to what you have to say without judgement and with respect. We aim to give you impartial advice; the course of action to take is yours. If we are unable to help we will do our best to direct you to someone who can. Our advice is on hand to offer support and guidance about a range of different issues including:
We provide information and advice on wide range of accommodation issues including University run and private rented accommodation. We can help with most problems including: landlords, contracts, deposits, council tax and difficulties with housemates.
University procedures can seem daunting so we are here to help advise you on mitigating circumstances, appeals, complaints, academic offences and disciplinary procedures. If you have any problems with your course or with the University we can help and advise you in complete confidence. We can also accompany you to any meetings the University may ask you to attend.
Most students will have some financial difficulties at some point and it is always better to seek help with financial problems as soon as they occur. We provide information and advice on wide range of financial issues including loans, debts, budgeting and benefits.
If you need advice on complex legal issues or are in need of legal representation we can help you find a suitable solicitor. We can also advise you of your legal rights in a number of areas and can provide information on legal matters.
Life happens and doesn't stop when you are at University. Problems with health, family and relationships can happen at any time. Sometimes just talking things through can be helpful or maybe you need some help with trying to sort something out. You can come and talk to us in complete confidence and we will help you find the right solution for you.
International and European student problems
Coming from another country to study in the UK can be challenging and students who have come to Bucks from other countries can experience difficulties that students from the UK don’t. We offer support and advice to students on a range of queries and issues including: visa and immigration, employment regulations, academic concerns, culture shock and money matters.
We have the time to listen, give advice and support you providing a professional, independent and confidential service which is accessible and welcoming. We will use our experience and knowledge on student issues to make life better for students at Bucks.
