Online registration for University Counselling Service temporarily unavailable

Due to essential updates to the system the University Counselling Service uses to book and manage appointments, online registration for the Counselling Service is temporarily unavailable.

UCS hope to have online registration fully operational again by the morning of Friday 15 September. In the meantime, you can drop into UCS in person and leave your details with reception. Pre-booked appointments will be taking place as usual.

In a statement, the Students' Union Welfare Officer, Reena Staves, said:

'I have been notified by the Director of Student Support Services that the University Counselling Service is running an advanced system update and due to this they have temporarily de-activated student registration.

'Having expressed my concerns about this, I have been assured that this is only a temporary measure. Pre-booked appointments will be taking place as usual.'
