The Brum Bulletin: 21/10/2020

The Brum Bulletin – your student newsletter

Welcome to this new-look newsletter for students at UoB, and a big thanks to students Georgina, Cat and Ranv for suggesting our new name via social media. We hope you like it and please get in touch with your ideas, stories and contributions via the email address at the end of the bulletin. Also a quick reminder that the clocks go back by an hour on Sunday 25 October, so please bear this in mind, particularly if you are studying overseas for time zone changes.

The start of the academic year has been a challenge for us all so we wanted to make you aware of how to access our world of wellbeing. From tips to take care of yourself to guidance on who to contact if you need support.

A world of wellbeing


Supporting your wellbeing

We appreciate that it's an incredibly stressful time for students so we asked Abi, one of our psychological practitioners, to talk through some of the services available to give support through these challenging times.
