Support during COVID-19
Support over the Christmas break
As the Autumn term ends we know that this year the College closure might be a bit different for everyone. We've put together a calendar of online events to keep you entertained over the festive period, as well as information on support available to you over the College closure.
Mental health and wellbeing
The global crisis has created new challenges for us all and it's important to look after your mental health as well as your physical health. Read our advice for looking after your mental health and wellbeing during this difficult time and learn about the support available to you.
Isolation and loneliness
The national and global restrictions on when we can socialise with family and friends mean it's difficult to stay connected with one another. As we all play our part in keeping the community safe, read our pages and learn about how to combat feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Coping with grief and loss
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many of us are having to face the deaths of people we knew and loved. Often we are far away from the people we love when they are sick and we are unable to say goodbye in ways we would wish. If you find you are struggling, read our information and advice on coping with grief and loss.
Staying connected and active
Despite it being a bit more challenging than usual, there are still plenty of ways you can stay connected with your friends and family as well as ways to stay active and look after your physical health. Read more to find out about how to stay connected and active as well as the support available to you.
Supporting your studies
Learning online is different to being in a lecture theatre or classroom. The transition to online learning may be challenging as it is new to many staff and students, so it's important to have the right learning approach to online study. Check out the Remote Learning Success Guide for top tips and guidance on remote learning.
Quarantine Support Package
Many of you joining us for the academic year 2021-22 will be required to either quarantine in a government hotel facility or self-isolate upon arrival in the UK. To help the time pass quickly, we have put together a Quarantine Support Package with live events, recommended shows and educational activities to get you prepped for the upcoming year.
