Workshops

Wellbeing Services offer a broad range of workshops to help support students in their time at Exeter. These are facilitated by the Psychological Therapies Pathway, who focus on issues surrounding students' wellbeing, and the AccessAbility Pathway, who focus on issues surrounding study skills and the effects of disability and long-term health conditions on study.

Our workshops have been tailored to focus on concerns that are frequently raised by students during their time at University. In this supportive space, you are offered practical tips and techniques to help you work through any problems you may be experiencing. Students often value the shared experience of a group and tell us that it helps to feel that they are not the only one struggling with something. Whilst there is opportunity for discussion, there is no expectation for you to take part.

To see a full list of the wellbeing workshops running throughout the academic year, see below.

If you are interested in a workshop which is not scheduled to take place in the near future, please do let us know so we are able to ensure we are providing the right support for students.
