Events to support students in self-isolation

It is important for students to look after mental health and wellbeing while in self-isolation. We've got a great range of events to support you.

Join us at our events happening over the coming weeks: supported by colleagues from Student Psychological and Counselling Services, these are online group sessions with fellow students in self-isolation.

Places are limited, so please ensure to sign up and attend the event(s) you would like to join. These will take place on Microsoft Teams unless mentioned otherwise. You will book your place through Eventbrite and you'll be sent a link to join closer to the date of the event.
