Wellbeing workshops for 2017/18

We know there is a lot to juggle whilst you study, which is why our Counselling and Wellbeing team work hard each year to put on free, practical sessions to give you tips and strategies to help you keep on track.

Whether you are prone to procrastination, anxiety or nerves, or simply want to improve your confidence and resilience, these sessions can help everyone. Not only will they help you in your academic career, you’ll also develop important skills to take with you beyond university – so take up the free opportunity whilst you are a student.

Changes to the workshops in 2017/18

This year we are offering the opportunity to attend workshops in your school at a time and place that suits your timetable. If you would like to arrange a session, have a chat with your Course Rep to see if other students on your course would be interested in attending. Then contact Sue Burnett, the workshop facilitator, or speak to your Student Support and Guidance Tutor who can pass on your details.
