say hi to emily, our brunel advocate!
At Brunel University your UniAdvocate is Emily Snow who is independent from the university and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on 01325 373 301.
Hi, my name is Emily, and I am the student advocate working at Brunel University. Having recently been a student myself, I understand what it is like to navigate university in the current climate. I’m here to support you through the difficulties you may face at being a student. Student mental health is so often overlooked by society and there are many situations that students find themselves in that can impact their mental health, such as appeals, meetings and feeling like you’re falling behind. I am here to guide you through these processes, to help you understand them and to support you to have your voice heard. It can be hard when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, but we are here to help you carry some of that weight.
