We recognise that many things can affect students experience and even affect your studies. If you find that you are unhappy with some aspect of university life or personal circumstances are affecting your studies then the Union can offer independent support and information or signpost you to the appropriate University or external services.

As well as information and signposting we offer specialist support and representation for academic appeals, disciplinary proceedings, academic misconduct, fitness to practice, complaints and more.

We are experienced supporting students on our professional programmes too and well as those in advanced studies e.g. PhD and professional postgraduate studies.

No matter how trivial or how serious the issue seems – you don’t have to deal with it on your own. We are here for you when you need us and aim to respond to enquiries on the same working day. If you need to speak to us send us an email advice.union@stir.ac.uk  and let us know your availability and we will send you an appointment. Alternatively, just drop by our office and speak to our Welcome Desk who will help set up an appointment for you. Appointments will be made to the format of your choice, be this in person, over Teams or on the telephone. If you need an appointment out of normal working hours we will try to accommodate that need.
