The Students’ Union Advice Services at Greenwich and Medway give free, independent and confidential advice to University of Greenwich students on academic and welfare problems. We will not report what you have told us to the University, unless you want us to, or in rare situations (particularly if your welfare is at serious risk). See: www.suug.co.uk/welfare www.gkunions.co.uk/advice
The only thing we cannot advise on is your Student Visa or Immigration status. Students seeking advice on visa or immigration issues should contact the University International Student Advice Service (ISAS) for assistance.
For further information, please see http://www2.gre.ac.uk/current-students/support/isas
All students are entitled to support from the Study Skills tutors at the University. There are also a lot of online resources. See: www.gre.ac.uk/studykskills
If you want to practice your English conversational skills, find out about Language Connect groups at http://wp.me/p42w1y-o
. These groups are available for all students.
In our opinion, nearly all international students have the skills to communicate effectively if they’ve got the confidence. The Language Connect groups are a great way to build your confidence, and help you take part in academic and social group activities.
