Rights & Advice Centre

Can We Help You?

We offer our advice service for all UCLU members, and registered students of UCL. Our service is also available for

  • prospective students who hold an offer for a UCL programme of study.
  • recent graduates where there is an ongoing matter relating to their studies, for example a student complaint.
  • students on interruption of studies with matters relating to their studies, for example returning to study, and support for study.
  • We can advise UCL students who are also UCL staff on matters relating to their student status, however we will refer to UCU (or other union) or UCL HR for any matters relating to their role as a staff member.

We are a free, confidential and independent advice and support service. Our trained and experienced advice caseworkers can give you advice about:

  • Immigration - including applying for your Tier 4 visa

  • Academic - including examination irregularities and student complaints

  • Housing - including contract check and housemate disputes

  • Employment - including unpaid wages and part time employment contracts

  • Many other legal and university matters

 You can come to a drop in and speak to an adviser, or make an appointment to see us. We also give email advice.


If you would like to have your TIER 4 visa application checked through our CHECK & SEND SERVICE (& you have no dependants making an application with you) you can book your own appointment online through our online booking system: uclu.org/visa-appointments

For any other type of appointment please contact us using our contact form , visit our offices or give us a call.
