Support Whilst Your Away

During your year abroad, you can still make use of the University’s Counselling and Wellbeing service which offers online support to any student not present on the Edgbaston campus.  The service offers short-term support to help you develop your own coping skills.  You can register for online counselling by visiting the Student Hub online FAQ’s and clicking on ‘Contact us’, or by telephoning +44 121 414 5130.
