We’re a friendly bunch and always try to welcome students with a smile. We are a team of permanent advisers who are professional and experienced and who are all able to help with virtually any welfare or course related query. We aim to provide everything from one-off simple advice to long-term support with on-going issues. We also provide representation for BSU students both within the university and its partner institutions.

Nicola Trelawny

Hi, I’m Niki, one of the small team of Academic Advisers part of Union Support and cover both Moulsecoomb  and Falmer campuses. (See our contact details on the Union website for details of locations). Our service operates a mixture of appointments and drop-ins in addition to accompanying students to University meetings where necessary.
 
My area of expertise is helping students who find themselves in academic difficulty or anything which impacts upon their ability to progress or succeed on their chosen course. If you are feeling uncertain about what to do next, want advice, or just need someone to direct you to the right people to help you when I can’t, then give me a call, drop me a line, or drop in for a chat during one drop-in times I am happy to help. I have a wealth of local knowledge and can help identify sources of support for you if I can’t resolve it myself and the decision as to how to move forward will always remain yours.
 
I look forward to you getting in touch.

Rob Bateman

Hi, I’m Rob, and I cover the Eastbourne and Hastings campuses and partner colleges for the Students' Union Support Service (although I can often be found on other campuses from time to time). Think of me as a friendly face on campus. We can discuss any problems you might be facing at university – hopefully I’ll be able to help you directly, and if not I’ll know who can. Students at Eastbourne and Hastings are as much a part of the University of Brighton as those in Brighton itself, but you might not know about the range of services and opportunities available to you.
 
Almost everyone has a few hiccups during their time at university: the important thing is that you aren’t afraid to ask for help at the right time. If there’s anything stopping you from reaching your full potential, or if you feel that things just aren’t quite going as you planned, drop me a line or call into my office and we can talk it through.
