Wellbeing Services

Your physical and mental wellbeing plays a big part in your success in the classroom, and each campus has a specialist staff member who can refer you to organisations that support physical, mental and spiritual health.


It’s normal to sometimes feel overwhelmed by what life throws at you, so if you do feel as though you need someone to talk to, our staff are more than happy to chat.


Students on all Campuses have access to Counselling and the Nurse Practitioner service by either phone or video link. Please follow this link https://ucol.libcal.com/appointments to book.
