Advice

Bullying and harassment

There are College and University processes to deal with any incident of bullying and harassment.

How Student Advice can help

SU Advice can talk to you about any incident of bullying, intimidation or harassment. It is not ok to feel bullied or intimidated by anyone and we will support you to understand all your options for reporting it and dealing with it. We understand it is difficult, but it is really important to tell someone if you are feeling uncomfortable because of someone else's actions or behaviours.

If you feel that you have experienced bullying, intimidation or harassment, you can make an appointment to talk things through with an advisor. Our meeting will be fully confidential and won’t commit you to taking any other action. We can help you locate the College or University policy you might need to use to make a complaint or to let people know what has happened.

We can also set up collaboration meetings with people from your College, the University or a harassment advisor so everyone can be around the same table to talk about your options and support you in taking action if you choose to.

We can also support you to access specialist services if you need them. The Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service provides a safe place to be heard, independent of your college or department. They offer free support and advice to any students who have been affected by sexual harassment or violence.
