Looking after your wellbeing following COVID-19

Covid-19 Approaches: Jan 2022

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all had to learn to adapt to new ways of going about our everyday lives. As a student at the University of Exeter, the Wellbeing team are aware that you may be facing many challenges. These might include:

  • Worrying about how to cope with COVID-19 and all the changes it has brought, such as changes to your study routine
  • Struggling to maintain structure in your life, which is impacting on your ability to find the motivation to study
  • Finding the strength to overcome the demands of University life or daily hassle
  • Overcoming fear when engaging with activities and socialising following the change in COVID-19 restrictions.

 We hope the resources below are useful; the University's Rapid Response Hub continues to update their information page on COVID-19, and you can contact them with any questions

How We Can Help
