Support over the holidays
During the holidays it is important to take time out and recharge, but also to keep up the routines that help you to stay happy and focused. See friends and family, keep active, eat and sleep well. Balancing downtime with preparation for the new year will help you to stay in touch with your studies and ease your return to University.
Whether you're going home for the holidays or not, University support services are still on hand to help you stay safe, happy and healthy.
