Students settle into their new routine of lectures, studying and socialising.
The Students’ Union holds Student Representatives Elections and by-elections. We elect over 650 students to become representatives on their course! Every course across the University will have a student rep. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to have a say in their learning experience.
Every year we host the Guide Dogs Association with our Advice and Support Centre to help raise money for their cause and to provide wellbeing to our students. We love puppies! Puppy Play Day is a paw-fect day and always cheers everyone up amid the assignment blues.
As students settle in to their day-to-day routine, thoughts may turn to friends and family at home. Some students get very homesick and may want to return home. However, a trip home may increase the homesickness and could make the feelings more severe when the student returns to university. Encourage your son or daughter to speak to their new friends and/or to University support staff, before they give in to temptation to return home.
