We want to do our best to help you as much as we can, but just in case you need help with something we can’t do, here’s a few other places you can look:
The University student services can offer help on anything from your course, exams and tuition finances to disability, welfare and mental health support. There’s a handy form UoN students can fill out here or you can pay a visit to one of the nine student services centres on and around campus any weekday from 9- 5.
Careers and Employability Service
If you’re worried about graduate employment, Tyfy can help you build up a catalogue of references by mentoring with us during your studies – which could make the difference. We don’t replace an internship, work experience or a part-time job though, and all of these can be accessed through the Careers team.
They do amazing work in building your industry connections and CV, so definitely give them a try.
External mental health support
Alternatively, there are tons of different mental health support services you can access outside of University. Organisations like MIND and CALM offer information and support for a huge range of mental health issues. The Student Minds website is also a great online community to connect with other students feeling just like you.
Disclaimer: we weren’t paid by any of the above organisations to recommend them, there are others available, these are just the ones we have used ourselves and can recommend.
