We hope that students achieve their academic potential during their time at the University of Worcester. However, we do know that sometimes things can go wrong or happen not as expected.
Our Advisors can support students with making sense of all academic procedures and explain to students their options moving forward. While advisors cannot act on a student’s behalf, we can attend meetings with students to offer support and ensure the process is completed in accordance with university policy.
