All the staff in the Wellbeing Centre are extremely welcoming and kind. Their attitudes are an absolute credit to this University!
Wellbeing Services are here to help students get the most out of their time at University. Health and wellbeing are crucial ingredients of effective study as well as a rich and fulfilling student experience, but staying well in body and mind isn’t always easy at University. For students with disabilities and long-term health conditions we understand that you may need support to manage your health and wellbeing, as well as your studies, whilst at University. We recognise that it’s much more difficult to learn and enjoy student life when practical and personal difficulties arise. Wellbeing Services can offer a range of services to support students personally and in their studies when difficulties occur.
Wellbeing Services is our umbrella term for the multiple wellbeing teams we have here at the University. We are made up of three main pathways including:
Wellbeing Services also includes the Exeter Access Centre.
We support current students studying at our Exeter campuses (Streatham Campus and St Luke's Campus). If you are based at our Penryn campus, please visit the Student Support webpages.
Are Wellbeing Services right for me?
We commonly see students with a variety of long-term health conditions, disabilities and mental health difficulties. We encourage you to get in touch if you have a long-term health condition (including mental health), disability, or specific learning difficulty so that we are able to ensure that you have access to the appropriate support whilst at University. We also support students experiencing mental wellbeing issues such as stress, anxiety and low mood.
If you are unsure if Wellbeing Services are right for you, please complete the below questionnaire. The questionnaire is measuring mental wellbeing and will direct you to appropriate support suggestions.
