Student Survivors Project

A partnership between Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Heriot Watt University, Queen Margaret University and Edinburgh College.

The Student Survivors project offers counselling support to university students and students from the Edinburgh College Community of all ages and genders who have experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives.

What we offer

We offer counselling support sessions, where you can use the time any way you choose, and we can talk through what support we can offer. Support may be offered in person, by video, phone or email.

We offer:
• An initial standalone introductory meeting to let us get to know each other and find out about your support needs.

then
• Up to 18 further sessions, delivered in three blocks of six, as soon as a counselling support worker becomes available.

Getting in touch and referrals

If you are currently enrolled as a student at University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Heriot Watt University, Queen Margaret University or Edinburgh College you can refer yourself for support by emailing studentsurvivors@ercc.scot. You can also be referred with your permission through your university’s or Edinburgh College’s well-being and counselling services.
