Making an Appointment with an Advisor

To make an appointment for your first meeting with an advisor, please contact the DSS directly and a member of our team will be able to make an appointment for you.

For students who are already fully registered with the DSS, an appointment can be made using our online booking system. Appointments can be made for a 30-minute time slot with your advisor. Please make sure that you select your advisor's name when making your appointment. If your advisor has limited availability online,  please call our reception team to ask about further availability.
