Student Advice and Support Service

The Loughborough Student Advice and Support Service holds an Advice Quality Standard (AQS); the quality mark for organisations that provide advice to a specific group of people on social welfare issues. For us this includes housing law, contract law, immigration, and money advice including student finance & debt. We are able to advise students, prospective students, and recent graduates of the University.

Finance

  • Budgeting- If you can't work out where all your money goes and how to make ends meet we can help.
  • Student finance problems- we deal with these issues all the time and understand the regulations. We also have a phone in our waiting room that you can use if you would prefer to sort the problem out yourself.
  • Debts- we can help you negotiate payments with creditors.
  • Welfare benefits- we can help you establish if you are entitled to benefits while studying and assist with applications.
  • Hardship- if you are in financial difficulty come and speak to an adviser as we may be able to direct you to a hardship fund to help (subject to your individual circumstances)
  • Credit, banking and anything else- if you are having difficulties with any financial matter come and speak to us for advice.

Housing

  • Renting in the private sector

  • Contract Checking (the unbiased view): They will answer any questions you have and help you understand your rights and responsibilities when renting.

International

  • How to extend your visa
  • How to register with the Police
  • How to bring your family to join you
  • How to rent a private house
  • How to access the health service
