Student support at UC

Connect with other UC students

Connecting with other students who understand university life can be beneficial when you are finding your way at UC.

Dealing with difficult issues

If you are experiencing unacceptable behaviours or have an academic dispute please seek assistance and advice.

Harassment of any kind involving staff, students or visitors, whether on or off campus, is unacceptable. Harassment can be defined as unwelcome, unsolicited and unreciprocated behaviour by a person or group that may offend, humiliate or intimidate another, and interferes with a person’s right to work or study in a non-threatening environment.

If you have a complaint relating to a staff member, student or visitor, the normal procedure would be:

If you have a problem relating to an academic matter, you are encouraged to discuss the problem initially with the member of staff concerned. If you feel uncomfortable about doing this or are unable to resolve the problem satisfactorily, you may seek assistance from your Professional Year Director of Studies or from the Head of Department. You can also seek the support of your Class Representative.

We encourage students to resolve their problem within the Department. Go to UC's process, rights and responsibilities webpage or the Appeals and Grievances Regulations in UC Calendar for more information.

We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students. Contact our department Safety Officer for further advice or information or consult UC's Health and Safety policy guidelines.
