We all have problems and concerns from time to time. It is crucial to your happiness and success at University that you don't let small concerns or issues develop into insurmountable problems. The BCSU Advice Centre is here to offer you advice and support on a wide range of issues and to help you make the right choices. The Advice Centre is run by the Students’ Union independently of the college, so you can rely on our impartiality and confidentiality.
All sessions are completely free for all enrolled students.
