You Are More Than Your Studies

As we head into exam season remember, you are more than your studies. Make sure that alongside studying and revision you take some time to relax, do something you enjoy and check-in on your mental health and wellbeing.

The Advice Centre at SUSU offer practical advice and help for academic, housing and financial issues. The University's Enabling Services team offer mental health and wellbeing support, as well as support for students with disabilities, mental health conditions or specific learning difficulties.
