Student Support Advisors: Bookings

Requesting support

You are able to make an appointment regarding other issues you encounter, such as:

  • Financial support for hardship and study needs
  • StudyLink application support
  • Issues that may be impacting your studies or study experience
  • Access to the food cupboard (includes toiletries/period supplies)
  • Informal concerns/complaints
  • Referrals and/or connecting you to other student services both on and off campus

Seeking financial help (Not StudyLink)

Before booking an appointment for financial help, please complete theStudent Financial
Assistance Form

At the appointment, you will need to:

  1. Tell us where your money has gone this week (we will need to see transactions for the last week – showing us on mobile/internet banking at the appointment is fine, but we do prefer this to be uploaded with your application if possible)
  2. Demonstrate what has put you in hardship
  3. Provide verification of any bills/costs you have paid this week (we will need to see a receipt, or show us the payment on mobile/internet banking)
  4. Discuss your completed  Student Financial Assistance Form

*Please note - you need to be currently enrolled and attending classes to apply for this funding.

StudyLink Applications

Our Studylink support sessions for completing StudyLink applications have finished for the semester, but you can still book an appointment with an Advisor who can assist you with your application.

Please make a face to face appointment with an Advisor or contact Studylink directly on 0800 88 99 00 for support with your application & the Student Loan/Student Allowance process.

Please note: it is important to check with Fees Free if you are eligible for Fees Free funding each semester. If you believe your fees have been paid with a scholarship please check emails from the team to ensure this is correct. If you are receiving fee reminders please contact Student Central asap to ensure your fees have been paid.
