Student wellbeing workshops

Feeling the pressure? Attending one of our workshops can help you to improve your wellbeing.

Student smiling

Our workshops cover a wide range of topics aimed at promoting a positive approach to your work and university life. All students are welcome to come along - no booking is necessary.

Rather than suggesting specific study skills and methods, the workshops will look at the stress and anxiety that can be attached to your life at university, and help you find ways to manage this calmly and confidently.

Each session will include a presentation from a trained facilitator, as well as small group discussions and individual exercises for reflection and practice. You will also be given a resource pack which can be used to further develop your confidence and wellbeing after the session.
