Many aspects of student life have had to change in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot of teaching has had to move online, many students are studying remotely and there’s less opportunity to socialise with other students this term.

It’s natural that you may be experiencing some ups and downs during these challenging and uncertain times.

Whether you’re returning to your studies, or, you’re a new student transitioning from school and home life for the first time, it’s particularly important to take steps to look after your mental wellbeing during this academic year.
