Question:

What is the difference between an academic advisor and a student advisor?

Answer:

An academic advisor is a lecturer or tutor from your department who can give you specific advice about your course and which subjects you should take.

If you are an international student, you can also contact an International Student Advisor who can give you more general advice, for example about:

    •    your student visa conditions
    •    your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)
    •    how to get extra study help if you’re having problems with your studies
    •    what to do if you want to withdraw from your course
