Understanding the first year

Students walking

Starting university is an exciting but daunting time for students. During the first few weeks some students may struggle with homesickness, worry about managing their money or wonder why they made the right decision to come here in the first place.

We can help students deal with many of these pressures but they are also likely to turn to you for support. By knowing some of the issues they are facing and what support is available you can help them cope with these challenges.
