When Things Go Wrong, We Can Help.
We hope that everything goes well during your course and during your exams, but we understand that sometimes things can go wrong.
If you find this is happening to you, it is important to remember that you are not alone. You can seek help and support from your Personal Tutor, from your SSGT as well as from us at Union Support.
Union Support consists of a team of professionally trained and experienced staff who have a wealth of experience helping students navigating the complex regulations that govern your academic experience. The service is free to students of Brighton University, advice is independent of the University, and always confidential.
