We know it’s frustrating when you have a problem but no idea who to speak to about it. Write to us here and we will deal with your issue directly where we can. If not, we will always pass your query on to the right person at the College.
We want to hear about the good stuff too! If you have any feedback or brilliant ideas you can let us know about these and we will make sure your comments land at the right person’s door.
We will regularly update our FAQ section with questions we know you want the answers to. If you think we are missing some important information in this section, please let us know by getting in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org

They are also contactable by phone;

Starting University can be a really exciting time. But for many students, it can also be an uncertain and unsettling time. So if you find that things are not going well during your first few weeks – or at any point while you are a student here, it may help to talk to a member of our Welfare team in the Student Advice Centre, which is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.
For further information and details about how to make an appointment, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t panic – and don’t wait until things get out of hand. Talk to your Course Tutor as soon as you feel you need help. If you are not getting the appropriate support from teaching staff, arrange to meet your Program Leader or Head of Faculty. Alternatively, you can come and have a chat with one of our Students’ Association Officers who can support you in a number of ways. We can get in touch with the relevant staff member, speak with them on your behalf, and come with you to meetings if you need a bit of moral support.
Get in touch by e-mailing us at email@example.com or popping into our office, room 00.61 on Scottish Borders Campus.
