Nearly everyone gets stressed in the run up to and during exams. However it's important not to let it get out of control.

We hope that the following links can provide you with some helpful guidance and tips to get you through the next couple of months:

Student Minds 
Mind (Mental Health Charity)
Stress Busting

However, if you are finding everything is getting on top of you, there are plenty of people/services on campus (and off campus) that you can talk to:

  • Well-being Signposting Service - runs 2-3 mornings a week. To book an initial 15 minute appointment, just email or call 01752 636891. This is a safe listening space and a place to get initial information about other support, both within the university and externally.
  • The Chaplaincy Listening Post - you can drop-in anytime, Monday to Friday, and speak to Michelle. To make an appointment then you just need to email
  • Student Counselling - there is a short waiting list and generally students are asked to make use of the Well-being Signposting Service and Chaplaincy Listening Post in the first instance. However, if you have had counselling before and are sure this is the best way forward for you, please email
  • Online - check out the full range of resources in the Student Handbook - including information on: anxiety, stress, Mindfulness techniques, and people to talk to out of hours.
