Counsellors from the University Counselling Service will be hosting an online chat on Wednesday 24th October between 1 and 2 pm. Our counsellors will be responding to your questions and concerns about coping with University – whether you've just started your First year, or you're returning after the summer or a placement year.
We will be discussing some of the things that you may be experiencing: trying to settle in and feel part of a group, missing your friends from home, living with others in your flat, and getting back into university life if you have been away. In fact, you can ask a question about any aspect of the first few weeks of term.
Some of the typical questions that could be asked, or concerns you might raise, include: Everybody else seems to be making friends and having a good time, but I still feel a bit lost - is there anything I can do? I really enjoyed sixth form college but University feels so different… I really enjoyed my placement but I am finding it hard to settle back to University life – what can I do?
If you wish, you can submit a question in advance.
All comments sent to the chat are anonymous.
