Student Wellbeing

We understand being a student has its challenges, it can be difficult to juggle study, work and home life. Finding ways to manage your stress levels can be the difference between having a great study experience and not. Our Student Advocates and support staff are available to talk about anything you may be struggling with. The team is experienced and knowledgeable and are able to connect you with outside organisations if needed.

Below are ideas on how you can manage your wellbeing.
