Being a student is not always a bowl of cherries
Student life can be brilliant but can also carry its own stresses and pressures. Take charge by understanding what you can do to help yourself.
It's easy to think that the life of a student is all interesting study and happy socialising. Sometimes. Away from your home and your school friends for the first time, intense study, new relationships, and the need to adapt to a new social life can all be challenging. This set of pages covers some of the practical and emotional issues you may encounter as a student and points the way to building the foundation of a fulfilling career with links to sources of help and support. There is a page on Depression at University and access to many telephone and web-based resources. There is also a very comprehensive section on Student Finance.
It's also important to look at the other sections of this website to give you some insight into the pitfalls to be avoided once you are released onto an unsuspecting world.
