Personal advising and support

Your Personal Advisor

From time to time at University, things may not always go according to plan. Should this be the case for you, YLS and the University can provide you with a variety of support. Your starting point should be your Personal Advisor at YLS, who can direct you to the most appropriate support dependent on the issue or problem you are facing.
