SBCI Stories hopes everybody is keeping safe in these uncertain times. We want our students to be aware of the services available to them.
Student Services are available for student appointments which can be made through the Hub.
This includes online and phone appointments, which can be made with the Counselling, Disability, International Advice, Academic Skills, Careers and our Funding and Advice teams by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0141 848 3800. For Academic Skills and Careers, you can also access resources or book online / phone appointments directly by logging into the system, or through MyDay.
While the University has suspended face-to-face teaching, students continue to engage in their studies remotely and will, therefore, receive statutory funding as normal from Student Awards Agency Scotland and Student Loans Company.
We will continue to liaise closely with those agencies as they monitor the nationally evolving situation and will update students accordingly.
We understand that many students will also be facing reductions in income as a result of part-time employment being impacted.
We are committed to using our resources to best-support students in this situation and will monitor the action of Government to ensure we have a coordinated approach that allows us to do this fairly.
The Funding and Advice Team continue to encourage eligible students to apply to the Discretionary Funds and are able to accept applications via email submission. Students can find out more about these funds on our website.
As this situation constantly evolves, the Funding and Advice Team will provide updates and answers to FAQs via MyDay – click on the Student Support tile, and then the Funding and Advice tile.
If you are an international student on a Tier 4 visa who has traveled home and are unable to return to the UK, please be reassured that you are not in breach of your Tier 4 visa conditions whilst you are continuing to engage academically with your studies in the manner outlined by your School.
International students on a Tier 4 visa who are unable to return home due to current travel restrictions and are worried about breaching their Tier 4 visa conditions (becoming an over stayer) should call the Home Office helpline as exceptional circumstances may be considered.
If you have any other questions don't hesitate to contact the university. Click here
