Student Health and Welfare

A healthy lifestyle and well-being are important factors for successful study results. If you feel unbalanced and it affects your health and your study skills, then you can turn to the Student Health and Welfare for help and support. We work proactively with lifestyle issues and offer both counselling and support.
