Health and wellbeing

Starting university is exciting, but it can also be exhausting. 

Taking care of yourself is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy and happy.  

Register with a doctor   

It’s important to be able to speak to a local doctor in case you are ill during your time at university. If you aren’t already, register with a local GP surgery and a dentist as soon as possible after you arrive.

Mental health and counselling  

Life can be stressful. We’re here to support you at times of any emotional or psychological difficulties. We offer free, professional and confidential counselling to all our students.
