Looking out for your wellbeing and health

Studying at Oxford can be a stressful experience at times. On top of the academic requirements, there are the complexities of the collegiate system, and learning to manage adult life away from home often for the first time.

In order for you to get the most out of your studies and have a happy and healthy experience at Oxford, looking out for your wellbeing and health is really important. Student Advice are always here if you need a chat about how to find support. You can Email Us to book a Talk-it-Through appointment and we can help you to find the right support.

If you would like support and you’re not sure where to start, you can contact Student Advice to find out what your options might be. Students often come to us to talk about feeling lonely or isolated, if they are worried about a friend's wellbeing, missing home, concerned about mental health, academic progress and workload, and any other topic which is concerning them.

Talk to someone – there are lots services available who can offer help. You could visit your GP and let them know how you’re feeling. You could talk to your College welfare team (details are usually in the College handbook or on the College website). Or you could contact the University Counselling Service, who also have a lot of support resources on their page.
