This session will introduce you to the ways in which some students are affected emotionally when they leave home to come to university. You will also find out about some of the difficulties that students face when they start university. You will be given suggestions about when it is important to direct students to other people who may be able to help.
A number of terms are used to describe types of services, such as Students’ Union and Wellbeing Services, for example. It is important to note that these terms will differ from university to university and that you will need to familiarise yourself with how services are known in your university.
