The Big 14: Student advice and welfare

UGM Twitter HeaderIn the run up to the General Meeting on Wednesday 6 November, we’ll be discussing the agenda items and asking you what you think. Please share your thoughts in the comments below and remember to come along to the meeting to get your voice heard. It’s 4-6pm in the Chapel Lecture Theatre at Penryn Campus. All students are welcome!

The Big 14 are FXU’s priorities, which you’ll hear a lot more about on the day. Taken from surveys, focus groups and conversations with you, the student population, we’ve listed the 14 key issues which we are keen to address and resolve.

8. Student advice and welfare

Our Advisers and the universities’ welfare team are here to support you on a range of issues including academic appeals, disciplinary procedures and dyslexia screenings. As with term dates, there can be differences between the two institutions, and this is something the Presidents are keen to address. You can hear more about this at the meeting next week, but in the meantime, we want to know what you think of the services provided.  And remember, if you feel really strongly about it, come along to the meeting. Your voice is important!
