University can be a challenging time. Having to adapt to a new environment with new people, routines, responsibilities and expectations can be stressful, and students’ experiences can have an enormous impact on both their immediate and future wellbeing and choices.

We work with tutors, staff and students to help them build resilience and develop positive, protective everyday habits. By combining relevant theory with practical tools, we help them to better manage pressure and change and to develop skills that can support them throughout their lives.
