Policies and Procedures

If you're experiencing a personal issue, or know someone who is, then SUBU Advice can listen to your situation and signpost you to services that can help.

We can advise students on the support available at BU and outside the University, and take a holistic view of your circumstances ensuring you get all the help you need. Our Advice Workers can listen to your issue, hear what you say and provide you with all the options available to help you take a step forward in resolving the issue. We can make phone calls to other services with you, be a central point on contact linking up services internally and externally to BU and support you with academic procedures such as exceptional circumstances.


Reaching out for help can be difficult. Taking the courage to approach a service is the first step to resolving your issue. It's important that you access the service you feel most comfortable talking to.
