Our Happy Balance wellbeing programme is focused on helping you achieve your ideal mental, social and physical state so that you can achieve your full potential and, most importantly, be happy!

Happy students are successful students and we make every effort to encourage you to nurture yourself. We will help you to identify the areas of your life that may need some work and we will support you in meeting your personal targets. We run a host of wellbeing activities that you can take advantage of, including the Health and Wellbeing marketplace which offers you the opportunity to meet with various organisations that may be able to offer you useful advice and support.

Our dedicated student wellbeing team are always there to help you and run a host of talks and workshops throughout the year to help protect and advise you. They can also help with any personal issues you may have, providing you with appropriate confidential support where appropriate.
