Confidentiality statement 

Everything a student discusses with a member of Student Advice will normally remain confidential within the Student Advice Team. The team (including the Director/Deputy Directors) may discuss your case in order to plan how best to assist you. In some circumstances, to facilitate support for your studies, or where there is a concern for your own health and safety or that of others (including Fitness to Practise) or because of a legal requirement, it may be necessary to speak to colleagues in the school or universities. Where this would involve sharing sensitive personal information, we would seek to discuss this with you beforehand where possible, and info will only be shared on a need-to-know basis. To help us support you now and in the future we keep a record of contacts we have had with you while providing your support, these records are held securely by the Student Advisers.
