Hi - thanks for your question. It might be best to book you an appointment with one of our Advice Workers so we can go through everything in detail with you. But, essentially, you need to talk to your Programme Administrator or Programme Leader - they will be able to talk you through the process for withdrawing from BU. The Placement and Careers Service might be able to help you work out what you'd rather do.

    Hi - sorry to hear you're not enjoying university. To drop out you need to fill out a form from your Programme Administrator (call askBU on 01202 969696) if you're not sure who that is. There are lots of things to think about in terms of e.g. your finance and housing - if you want to book an appointment with SUBU Advice to go through those issues, please email subuadvice@bournemouth.ac.uk - we'll be happy to help you.

    Thank you for getting in touch with SUBU Advice. I’m sorry to hear that you are having problems with your accommodation. I have attached an advice leaflet from the specialist housing advice service Shelter. You will see in the leaflet that you can contact the Environmental Health Department in the Council to report the outstanding repairs and arrange for an inspection of the property. The Council have the authority to contact your landlord and request that they undertake the work. In the first instance you could start by writing a formal letter to your estate agent and landlord advising that if the work is not carried out you will report the situation to the Environmental Health Department. This may result in them finally taken some action to resolve the problem. If the work required to the property is major structural work you may find that the landlord will not be able to carry out the work with you residing in the property. In that case the you could try to claim compensation for the rent that you have paid through the county court. However, your landlord should really find suitable alternative accommodation for you for the same amount of rent. Please have a look at the leaflet that I have attached which explains this all in detail. You can also contact Shelter’s advice line or drop into their office for some speciality housing advice: Shelter Housing Aid Centre 30 Poole Hill, Bournemouth BH2 5PS +44 344 515 1400 Please let me know if you [...]

    That's a tricky one - is there anything in your contract which covers pets? Is the landlord aware of the dog? If they're not allowed then you're in a strong position, or if the landlord has agreed without your consent you might also have an argument. I think it would be best to book you an appointment to discuss this in person - our service is confidential so you'll still have your anonymity.
