Exam time and the results period can be a stressful period, so its important to think about your wellbeing.
We take your personal wellbeing seriously and there is lots of advice and help provided by the Department, and many services available across the University.
Where to go for help in the Department
If you have any questions, concerns or need to talk, there are plenty of people within the Department that you can come and speak with, such as Year Tutors, Personal Tutors and the Directors of Pastoral and Academic Support.

Wellbeing Drop-in Sessions
Your wellbeing is important to us and we are always here to help you. We have introduced Wellbeing Drop-in sessions where you are welcome to call by and speak with Annie on any issues that may be concerning you. If there is something troubling you, or hindering you from focusing on your studies, please make contact. Annie will be able to signpost you to the appropriate person or service.
Dedicated Wellbeing Drop-in sessions will initially be held on Tuesdays 11-12 noon and Fridays 2-3pm in Room S0.97. You do not need to book an appointment, but can just drop in. However, outside of these hours you can find Annie in the Undergraduate Office (S0.98) and she will be happy to help you, as always.
Please note this is not a replacement for attending personal tutor meetings.

Situated in the heart of the campus, the Health Centre serves students staff, plus their families, who live on campus or within the catchment area.
