We're a small team of experienced academic advisers working for you, the student, as part of Brighton Students' Union. We are independent from the University of Brighton and therefore impartial in the advice we give.
We can provide you with independent, advice and guidance on issues related to fees, debt, housing, wellbeing, bullying and harassment but primarily we are here to help with academic issues. These include; what to do if you are withdrawn, how to submit mitigating circumstances, how to appeal, how to apply for extensions and what to do if you are being disciplined by the university, have a complaint or are being investigated for poor academic conduct.
Our service operates on an appointment system, meaning you should book an appointment to come and see us.
Academic misconduct can be broadly defined as trying to gain an advantage over other students by unfair methods. Students who are found guilty of academic misconduct can face heavy penalties which can have a devastating effect on their academic career. With this in mind, it?s important that you have a good understanding of what constitutes misconduct, so you can take steps to ensure you don?t unwittingly fall foul of the rules.
