Important information – service changes

The Student Advisors offer telephone, zoom and in-person appointments. 

If you would like an appointment please complete our enquiry form and a member from the team will be in contact.

What can I expect?

Meeting roomAppointments with Student Life Advisors or Student Money Advisors usually last up to 30 minutes. They need to be booked in advance directly with an advisor.

Our Advisors are trained to support students with a range of both emotional and practical matters.

The kinds of things students come to see Student Life Advisors about include: feeling homesick, having difficulties settling in, feeling things aren’t going the way you’d expected, housing problems, feeling anxious about seminars, concerns about study skills, money worries, health concerns, and many other situations that may be impacting on your studies. There might be a specific issue you want advice on, or perhaps you are feeling conflicted and there is something you’d like to talk over.

An appointment with an Advisor can also provide you with information and assistance with University processes, such as taking Temporary Withdrawal (a break from your studies).

The kinds of things students come to see Student Money Advisors about include: funding delays and disruption, funding shortfalls, debts, gambling, money worries, improving financial capability and planning a budget.

Remember, we are here to offer advice and guidance on issues or concerns you may have throughout your time at Sussex.

Who can I see?

We have seven Student Advisors, each linked with particular Schools of study and with specific training specialisms. You can book an appointment with the Advisor linked to your School, but it is also fine to see one of the other Advisors if that is more convenient.

Appointments can also been made to see someone from our Student Funding Team or our Student Money Advisors.
