Wellbeing Advisers

The Student Wellbeing Service is part of a range of health and wellbeing services that is available to all University students. All Schools and Deaneries have Wellbeing Advisers who you can speak with if you are experiencing any wellbeing-related issues that are affecting your health, wellbeing, studies or personal life. The Wellbeing Advisers can then provide you with advice and guidance, and will also be able to discuss and link you up with our other University services, as well as signposting to external agencies.
