The primary determinant of a truly exceptional student experience is the quality of the interaction between academic staff and students.
Case study: Therapy dogs on campus
You may have noticed some dogs playing around campus in the past year.
That’s because UCL Student Support and Wellbeing (SSW) have organised visits by Nurture Dogs, to help our students during stressful times like exams. Research shows that interacting with dogs can contribute to positive overall wellbeing, and the sight of them on campus had the added benefit of encouraging students to come speak to SSW staff and find out more about the support services on offer.
This is just one of a number of fun, small-scale activities we’ve organised to promote student wellbeing, including cycling for a smoothie, problem-solving booths, advice-sharing boards, crafting and letter-writing sessions and student challenges.
UCL believes wellbeing is as important for our students as their studies.
