You're not alone

If you’re having a 'wobble' or just aren’t feeling great right now, that’s OK. Everyone below has been where you are, and they all got through it – now they’re sharing their tips with you to help you do the same.

To find out about each of the below student and staff members' 'wobbles' and how they got through them, just click on their names or pictures and then click play on the video just beneath this text. Every one of them has a different piece of advice (or sometimes lots of pieces of advice) for when you're having a tough time. After watching these, check out our schedule of events to get inspired, motivated and meet people within the uni who you can talk to.
