Student Mental Health

Student Mental Health Survey

The University acknowledges that many students are likely to be experiencing issues with their mental health during the pandemic and that those issues may continue for the duration their studies.

The University is currently reviewing its Student Mental Health Policy and its support provision for students who are experiencing mental health difficulties. We are seeking feedback from students to enable us to better inform policy and improve current provision and access to support.

The responses are anonymous but if you would like to take part in a Focus Group (a more detailed discussion of your experience), please give your ID number and we will contact you.

If you’d like to be entered into the prize draw to win a £25 Amazon voucher, please enter your details when prompted at the end of the survey.
Your help with this is much appreciated.
