If you find yourself experiencing any difficulties abroad, whether emotional, medical, financial or otherwise, do seek help as soon as you can. Your first point of contact will be your host institution or employer. If you are studying at a university, there may
be services available
such as a health centre or counselling service. If you are unsure of what is available to you, try contacting the International Office or Study Abroad Team at your host uni for advice. If the difficulty you are experiencing is having a significant impact on your time abroad, please try to inform the Study Abroad Team as soon as possible.
In addition to this, the UCL Student Support website can offer valuable advice and information for those going through difficulties. The website includes advice pages on various student issues and also has an online student support group that uses peer support to provide help. The group is only open to UCL students so you need to register online to get access. For more information, visit the UCL Support Pages.
If you just need someone to talk to, the London Nightline team are available during UK term time. Because they work from 6pm-8am, this can be useful to you even if you are in a different timezone. As well a phone service, they offer Skype and IM, so it won't cost you a penny.
If you cannot find help in your host country, please
remember that UCL is always available to support you. If you do experience
difficulties of any kind, no matter how small, please contact the Study Abroad Team or your Study Abroad Tutor for help and advice.
