Other support services

Support services available across the University and other organisations in Edinburgh

Support within the University

The University has a wide variety of mental health and wellbeing services. Some events put a focus on the academic aspects of University life such as essay writing and exam preparation. Others offer the opportunity to learn about the steps you can take to help with common difficulties like ‘being stuck’ or ‘low confidence.’

There are drop ins, workshops and courses to teach you skills you can apply more widely like Mindfulness and Tai chi.
