Your personal growth
Taking time for your own personal growth and wellbeing is just as important as focusing on your career or further study. We've brought together resources that are available to you as a new graduate that could support your personal journey and help you be the best version of yourself.
The Foundation for Positive Mental Health is working with the University of Edinburgh to provide free access to the Feeling Good App - an evidence based self-help programme.
New graduates can now access a mental skills training programme which teaches how to calm the mind and develop a positive mindset, enabling greater emotional resilience to deal more effectively with challenges of life after graduation.
iThrive is a fantastic online space where you can find information and resources for mental health and wellbeing in the Edinburgh area. It's managed by Health in Mind, the local mental health charity, and includes access to services, support, activities, events and places.
You can use your university experience to be part of the picture and contribute to the UK’s biggest annual social survey - the Graduate Outcomes Survey.
The survey aims to help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development, and is a key tool in helping shape the future of Higher Education in the UK.
The University of Edinburgh offers a range of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), many with a personal development slant that can help you enhance aspects of your life from physical fitness to philosophy.
MOOCs are freely accessible and open-licensed short courses, delivered to large cohorts of learners fully online. To date, more than 2 million people have signed up to Edinburgh courses across a broad range of subject areas, and they form part of the University's commitment to knowledge exchange and community outreach.
