Supporting you

The health and well-being of our students is our top priority. We recognise that this is a difficult time, which is impacting on how and where we study.

It is more important now than ever for all of us to take care of our mental as well as physical health.

The University has a number of resources for students to help you find the support and information you need. These resources are updated regularly and are available on the student well-being page on Moodle.
