Hi, I’m Vas, your Welfare Advisor. I’m here to help you out and be at your service, for almost anything that surrounds your student life and beyond. I’m a Trekkie, love basketball, philosophical talks, long walks into the sunset and good food. I approach life with a platonic idealism and an innate thirst to get things right. I come from Greece so I always enjoy a good conversation over a nice cuppa and a game of backgammon. Live long and prosper!

Testimonials

“Very useful and efficient service would highly recommend to all students”

“The advice was very well researched and allowed us to make the best decisions with all the information in front of us. It also allowed us to feel like we could handle the situation ourselves with the support of the university”

“Was able to navigate an extremely tricky situation with my landlord because of the responsive and very well-informed advice services”

“I found the service really great and supportive. My enquiry was handled really quickly and the advisor I spoke to really took the time to listen and understand my situation which I really appreciate!”

“You were so prompt with all your responses and never made me feel like I was alone. I felt like I had support and for that reason, I don't think that there is anything that you could do better”
