Managing Change

Who is it for?

This session is for students at all levels, both new and returning. It is for those who would like some additional support during this period of change, by learning strategies and advice on how to best look after themselves during this time.

You are not expected or required to share any information you are not comfortable with sharing in the group. You can share as much or as little as you like.


The first half of the session will focus on the impact of this transitionary period on our overall wellbeing, emotional and mental health:

  • Expectations vs reality - How to manage this?
  • Emotional Resilience - What is it, how can you look after it?

The second half focuses on the practical elements of this year and how you can best prepare and look after yourself:

  • Academic transitions - from School or College, or returning to University with new changes in place
  • Managing finances
  • Managing relationships - both at home and at University, within current guidelines
What will I get out of this?
