Advises Young Lives
University life is more often than not an enjoyable experience but for some this excitement could be marred by some anxieties, worries and concerns. There are certain aspects of living alone for the first time that can trigger anxiety in many students e.g. money management, accommodation, dealing with landlords, opening bank accounts etc. The transition from living at home to living overseas can be stressful and challenging for some.
The purpose of the Citizens Advice Bureau is to enlighten and empower students with problems, so that they gain the confidence and can make informed choices on their rights and responsibilities.
We cannot intervene or negotiate if the student’s problem is not in our jurisdiction, but we can most certainly point them in the right direction. The bureau advises students with any presenting problem to contact the Gibraltar bureau who then refer them to the UK, CAB nearest to their university or halls of residence.
