How soon will I receive a response?

We aim to respond to all enquiries within 48hours (except when we are closed or during our busy periods). We prioritise urgent enquiries first. Please submit an enquiry with as much information as possible or book a face-to-face appointment with us.

What type of appointments do you offer?

We advise by telephone, Microsoft Teams (video calls) or offer face-to-face (in person) appointments. The quickest way to speak to an advisor is to submit an enquiry form. In person appointments will depend on appointment availability.

I have a meeting with the University and I need some help?

Please submit an enquiry sharing the details of the meeting invitation you have received from the University. We can advise on your options, we can attend with you (if we are available), or request the meeting be rescheduled for a later date so we can attend with you. You can request the University to reschedule the meeting until you have had an opportunity to speak to your advisor.
