Complaints Procedures

We are committed to providing a high quality educational experience which is supported by excellent administrative and pastoral support. In order to assist us in this endeavour we welcome feedback from all of our students, but recognise that whilst the majority of it is positive in nature, there will be occasions when problems arise. We wish to ensure that any student of the University Centre who is dissatisfied with the service or educational experience that they have received is able to raise their concerns or submit a complaint.
