Statement on confidentiality

Students can be seen in private and any personal problems that are affecting your studies will be treated in the strictest of confidence.  However, the purpose of this office is to help you keep on track with your studies and to assist you to make a success of your time as a student.  As such we do not feel it would be in your interests to provide a strictly confidential service and you should be aware that we will share some details of our discussion with other staff involved in the interest of best supporting you.  This might be academic staff, the disability support office or the counselling service but would not normally include anyone from outside the University.  If you would be uncomfortable with this kind of disclosure then you may feel that you would be better being referred to a support agency within the University which maintains a strictly confidential service such as Occupational Health, Counselling or Academic Advisement.
