Students in park

We believe it's crucial that you look after your health and wellbeing to help you make the most of your time here.

If you are experiencing personal, emotional or psychological difficulties, or just interested in living a healthier lifestyle, our health and wellbeing team can help.

We provide a wide range of support including:

  • self-help resources – information on a range of health and wellbeing matters that may impact on your student life
  • support from a fellow student – talk to students who are trained to provide practical help to fellow students in confidence
  • workshops, courses and groups – we run a wide range of events throughout the year intended to support you to look after your own wellbeing at university
  • wellbeing drop-ins, counselling appointments and referrals for further specialist support – talk one-to-one with professional counselling and wellbeing therapists via drop-ins and bookable appointments.

Our occupational health team based at Heath Park campus provide support to healthcare students in preparation for your course and placements.

We also have Park Place GP surgery if you live in the catchment area. This service is provided as a joint collaboration between us and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
