Wellbeing and Student Support update for staff

We thought it might be helpful to have a few updates from Wellbeing and Student Support, so that you are aware of what is available, and how students and staff can access advice/support this term. We continue to offer our full range of services both virtually and in person.

Key wellbeing highlights

Wellbeing Advisers continue to work with you in departments to embed wellbeing in all we do as a community - please contact them if you'd like to discuss any bespoke sessions for your students.

Our weekly wellbeing themes will continue based on the issues that students come to us with throughout the year.

Please continue to signpost students to us - feedback from students is that they are more likely to engage if they are signposted by their academic department. Your support does make a difference.

Wellbeing Programme - Steps to Wellbeing

We recognise the particular challenges of the past few years, and want to equip our student population to thrive whilst they study with us. We have developed a 5-session wellbeing programme we call Steps to Wellbeing. This rolling programme will offer five 1 hour interactive sessions on key wellbeing issues:

  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Productivity and work: Life balance
  • Managing change and uncertainty
  • Boosting low mood
  • Sleep and relaxation

Students are invited to book themselves onto the 5 week programme to gain the key skills and strategies they need to navigate the challenges of student life - register here.
