Exam Stress: Looking After Your Wellbeing

Welcome back to the Summer Term! I hope you had a productive and relaxing Easter break, as many will now be gearing up for your end-of-year project, essays and exams.

Many of you may have plans for long hours of revisions or all-nighters to complete an important assignment, but remember to look after your wellbeing too!

Tell me more!

If you haven’t already, you can check out upcoming events as part of our Stressbusters campaign, which aims to encourage students to take breaks in-between their studies in order to relieve some stress.

We know that sometimes university life can throw a curve ball your way. So if you’re experiencing any difficulties that are impacting your ability to fully engage with your studies, the Students’ Union Advice Centre is here to help you.

We understand that asking for help is not easy, and making appointments to see an advisor can be quite a daunting experience. You’ll be happy to know that from Tuesday 30 April to Tuesday 28 May, you can drop by the Advice Centre any time between 10am to 4pm (excluding 1-2pm) to speak to an advisor. All questions are welcome, as our advisors can help you with anything from coping with exam stress to submitting an extenuating circumstances applicationthis service is completely free and confidential!

The last date to submit an extenuating circumstances application is midday on Tuesday 4 June, so please do get in touch with the Advice Centre by emailing advice@su.rhul.ac.uk to speak to one of our advisors about your concerns.

In conclusion…

It’s okay to not be okay – and we’re always here to support you! We all handle the stresses of university life differently, so make sure that you take some time in-between your revision sessions to look after your own wellbeing.

Best of luck to everyone!
