I have been writing weekly updates for the Graduate School for 12 months, I started last May and I am humbled at the positive responses. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to reach so many of you. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about the services offered at Student Wellbeing.
The services we provide are for you, all of you! We would love more people to join in and get involved.
People require support at different stages of their personal and academic journeys. When we speak with students, they are often astonished to learn of the variety of supports available.
June will be an exciting month for events in the Graduate School and will be supported by our Mind your Mood ambassadors. Hope you can join in!
