It is not unusual for students to be managing difficult and/or complex personal lives while studying.
Adapting to a new environment can be challenging and it is not unusual to feel homesick, but support is available. There are also activities at the University that can help you make the most of your time here; find out more about making the most of university.
Meeting new people and forming new friendships is a positive part of university. However, sometimes you may experience conflicts or negative relationships that you need support with. Support is available through the Student Support & Wellbeing service.
Bullying and Harassment
If you feel that negative relationships have reached the point of bullying or harassment, you may consider taking some further action to challenge the behaviour. Support, advice and guidance can be found on the Bullying and Harrassment page.
