Starting University is a big adjustment in anyone’s life and can seem very daunting at first.
Therefore, it’s so important to find ways that work for you to help you cope with this change.
For many of you, University will be the first time you have moved away from home and so feeling a little bit homesick is perfectly normal. For some people this lasts a few weeks, and for others it’s a feeling that never fully disappears.
However, a good way to cope with this is to plan when you are going to take trips home or even invite your family up to experience the wonderful city that Hull is. Whether this is as frequent as every other weekend or once a month, it will give you something to look forward to and enable you to have a clear vision of when you will next get to see your friends from home and your family.
Getting help from the University is so simple and there are a variety of ways to access it. You can:
• Complete the self-referral form provided by the Mental Health and Wellbeing Team
