Who We Are
Guild Advice is a free, impartial and confidential advice service for students at the University of Birmingham. Our Education and Welfare Advisors specialise in the following areas: Academic, Housing, Wellbeing and International Support.
Like the Citizens Advice Bureau, we give practical advice on all kinds of subjects relating to student life. We are on hand if you need someone to talk to - just come and visit us on the Ground Floor of the Guild of Students!
Drop in Sessions
Currently Guild Advice are offering 2 drop in sessions during term time, giving you the opportunity to discuss a new concern with an advisor in a confidential environment. You don't need an appointment; just report to Guld Reception on the following days and times, and one of our advisors will see you (new enquiries only):
- Each Wednesday between 12-2pm
- Each Thursday between 12-2pm
During a Drop In session, you will meet with an advisor who will provide you with inital guidance. Where required, ongoing advice work will take place via email with your allocated advisor.
Alternatively, please use the ‘contact us’ form to get in touch. Student queries will be responded to within 3 – 5 working days.
What We Do
As well as providing advice and guidance we conduct research to help prepare you for University Academic meetings and arrange appropriate representation as and when required. We can also offer support with checking through appeals and complaints and can guide you through the processes.
This year we are excited to be delivering a range of awareness and support campaigns in relation to wellbeing and advice, our aim is to get information out across the University to as many of you as possible.
