Your ultimate guide to wellbeing at Imperial.
Student Support Services
In line with current government advice with regard to Covid-19, the College will be delivering all student support services remotely from Thursday 19 March until further notice. All services will remain operational throughout the remote working period, although some services will be adapted to accommodate remote delivery. The Student Counselling and Mental Health Advice Service will be undertaking a brief transition period to ensure that they can continue to deliver safe and clinically appropriate support to service users. A summary of remote student support can be found below and full details can be found at each service webpage. The continued provision of advice and support to our whole student community is our absolute priority.
All activities will be delivered remotely, including 1-2-1 appointments, workshops and seminars. A small number of events have been cancelled in line with government advice. To access these services and for further details, please view the Careers site.
