Student Services

Student services

Student services is made up of a number of teams who offer advice to staff as well as students. We are there for the fun stuff as well as the more serious issues that students might face. As well as the individual teams listed below, the Head of Service is responsible for student conduct, welfare and safeguarding issues.

You can contact any of the Executive team listed below or, for a general enquiry, get in touch with our AskBU service via email or phone 01202 969696 who will be happy to help.

We are not able to discuss individual student details with third parties (including parents), but we are happy to advise on university policies and process and provide general information about university life and support.

Our vision 

Student Services is an integrated, professional and inclusive service, enabling and empowering students and staff to be the best they can be.
