We know that starting university can be an exciting experience, but that it can also bring challenges, some of them unexpected. Settling in, building new relationships and adapting to new social and learning environments can be demanding, and it's natural to feel overwhelmed.

The Division of Campus Life has led the development of a resource to help new students start to think about some of the experiences and feelings they might face in their first weeks, and how they will handle them.

This short module about starting university was shared yesterday (Tuesday, 10 September) with all incoming first year home/EU students, and will be shared with international students shortly after their arrival. It has sections on belonging, healthy relationships, resilience and wellbeing. We hope that it will help our new students as they transition from one part of their life to another.
