When you’re not doing so great, one of the most powerful steps you can take is really rather simple: talk about it. Sometimes that can feel easier said than done – we feel like we’re burdening someone else with our problems, and we don’t want to come across as needy or like we don’t have our lives on track.

Our Student Welfare Team are always on hand to support you with any queries or personal matters that you may come across during your studies. Our friendly team are here to help, so do not be afraid to ask for their support and advice, no matter how big or small you think your issue is. Take a look at the handy guides, book an appointment or gain access to the counselling and mental health services available.
