Advocacy (ăd’və-kə-sē)

1. giving aid to a cause or position; 2. support for people who are thought likely to be disregarded or to have difficulty in gaining attention, so that their opinion is listened to.

Usually, you will get along just fine with the University, but every now and then things may not go according to plan. There are lots of regulations that surround your time as a student, and they can be insanely confusing. If you have a problem with the uni, or the uni has a problem with you, you may want to get advice. That’s where we come in.

Graduate, undergraduate, local and international students are welcome to use this free and confidential advocacy service. If you need assistance, please contact us here.
