About

The Students' Guild Advice Unit provides free, independent and confidential advice and information on a range of issues affecting students, including Housing, Money, Academic related matters, and Harassment and Bullying.

Students based in Cornwall have access to the advice service provided by FXU, the joint Students' Union for students at the University of Exeter and University of Falmouth.

How the Advice Unit works

The Advice Unit has a team of friendly and approachable advisors who will deal with your enquiries whether in person, by telephone or email. They are fully trained and keep up to date with the latest information and will ensure that you receive accurate and timely advice that will empower and enable you to resolve issues quickly wherever possible and relieve the stresses of student life. Some enquiries will be more quickly resolved by email or phone, otherwise the advisors may offer you a booked appointment usually within the week (subject to service demand).

Some of our advisors are also members of the University's Network of Dignity and Respect Advisors. This team of staff within the Guild and University exists to support anyone who is the victim of bullying or harassment. The advisors will provide support to students whilst you explore options for tackling your concerns.

The Advice Unit hosts a number of promotional events during term time to raise awareness of welfare issues and support available. One of the most important services offered by the Advice Unit is our free contract checking service - especially popular during the Spring Term housing search. You will find more information on our Accommodation Page.
