The Advice & Representation Centre team

The Advice & Representation Centre (ARC) offers an extensive independent information, advice and representation services to Aston students. The ARC is similar to a Citizens‘ Advice Bureau, but specialises in student enquiries.

Enquiries are treated with absolute confidentiality by our friendly, well-trained advice team. The team's expertise covers a wide range of areas, including academic issues, tuition fees, financial worries, maintenance grants, bursaries, immigration, accommodation and landlord issues.

Based in the Students’ Guild, the Centre also has leaflets and a notice board area advertising everything from accommodation to typing services.

ARC helps our students with:

  • Academic appeals

  • Access to learning fund appeals

  • Course related issues

  • Disciplinary matters

  • Exam boards

  • University sanctions

  • Money advice

  • Off campus accommodation

  • And more…

ARC are open between 10 am and 4 pm Monday to Friday, and can be contacted on  0121 204 4848 or arc@aston.ac.uk
