Student Advice

Offering free and impartial advice and support to all students.

AUSA Student Advice Centre is a safe place where respect and tolerance are key values and confidentiality is respected at all times.

There are lots of reasons to pop into the AUSA Student Advice Centre.  We deal with private accommodation, academic appeals and complaints, Part-time employment, employability advice, money and health.

Accommodation

We deal with all aspects of private accommodation.  Come and see us or drop us an email if you want to find a new flat to live in or to advertise your spare room.  

As part of our Accommodation Services we offer we can also help to mediate between Students and Landlord’s if any problems arise which cause a breakdown in communication and relationships.

Academic Advice

If you experience issues during your course at Aberdeen then we are here to help. We provide tailored academic advice to you and will support you from start to finish with the process. 

We can also act as your representative at meetings with the university, just ask! 

Part-Time Employment 

Here at AUSA we fully appreciate the importance of balancing the need to find part-time work whilst undertaking your studies. We have an online database full of part time vacancies which is updated regularly.  Our dedicated website allows 24/7 access to our student friendly jobs throughout the year as-well as providing a wide variety of useful links.

 We constantly work hard to ensure that we maintain a strong professional relationship with our employers to ensure that they keep advertising their vacancies with us.  We have over 1,500 registered employers on our database which means we can put you in touch with companies who have suitable vacancies.  Head into the centre to view the most recent list of job vacancies or give us a call.

General Health & Wellbeing 

We understand that your experience at University is an exciting and challenging adventure and for this reason, one of our main services is providing all-round welfare advice & support. AUSA has information available on mental health, such as how to cope with stress (think of those exams!) and depression. We also have tons of useful leaflets on sexual health and offer a wide variety of contraception (including non-latex condoms!) and STI testing kits.

Money Advice 

Another issue we can support you with is getting your budget and finances sorted for the academic year – we have a dedicated Money Advisor you can book an appointment to see, and we can also give advice on applying for travel and childcare grants and benefits.

Employability Information

We recognise the importance of helping students develop the necessary skills to help them pursue a career after University or simply find a part-time job during their studies. We can offer guidance and tips on job applications, C.V’s, presentations and interviews. We can also offer support and on employment issues, income tax, wages and National Insurance numbers.
