Starting University can be a life changing experience where you will make new friends and learn new skills. As you will be studying with us for several years, you are bound to experience some challenges along the way, often not even related to your studies. Look for resources on managing your money, dealing with homesickness, being a carer, estranged student or care leaver, LGBT+, exam stress, anxiety, sexual assault, domestic violence, homelessness and much more.

Student Minds have produced two useful guides for university students:
Know Before You Go
University can be a very exciting time in your life, but it can also be a big change from school or college. It is normal to face challenges as you transition from one part of your life to another. By knowing what to expect and having a resource to help you navigate the ups and downs, you’re setting yourself up for success over the next several years.
Know Before You Go is an e-resource that is intended for Year 12-13 students, and the educators who support you, as you transition from school/college to university.
This life skills resource helps you to anticipate, identify and navigate situations you will encounter when entering higher education. It contains information on many topics including paying bills, study skills, housemate issues, identity questions and embedded throughout is how to maintain good mental health and seek help as needed.
Transitions is a guide for students already at uni. This resource is here to help you be successful on campus, focusing on time management, relationships, identity, finances, sexual activity, mental illness, suicide and addictions and more. It also includes tips and strategies for helping students through challenging times and recommendations of where to go to get additional help, if needed.
