The Advocacy and Financial Counselling service at Flinders University Student Association (FUSA) assists students with a range of academic, administrative and welfare related issues. Our aim to help you understand University policies and systems to ensure you are aware of the options available to you. 

This service is available to all currently enrolled students of Flinders University and is free, independent and confidential. Our service includes advocacy, support, assistance, information and referrals on any issues that may affect the lives of students. 

Whether you’re dissatisfied with a grade, struggling to make financial ends meet or are trying to wrap your head around University policy, FUSA is here to help.

We provide advice to individual students about your rights and responsibilities within the university, in a respectful, non-judgmental and timely manner.
