Support for your health and wellbeing [Updated - 26 February]

Your health and wellbeing continues to be of utmost importance. The University’s wellbeing services are here to support you as usual; however, they are working remotely in line with the rest of the University and Scottish Government guidelines.

Find out more about the University’s Health and Wellbeing resources and services, including how to contact them.

Five Ways to Wellbeing

The University promotes the New Economic Foundation's 'Five Ways to Wellbeing' as a great resource to help you maintain positive wellbeing:

  • Connect: Talk and listen, be there, feel connected.
  • Be active: Do what you can, enjoy what you do, move your mood.
  • Take notice: Remember the simple things that give you joy.
  • Keep learning: Embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself.
  • Give: Your time, your words, your presence.

Asymptomatic testing in Semester 2

In line with Scottish Government restrictions, please do not travel back to your term-time address unless you have specific exceptional circumstances where travel is permitted.  If you believe you have an exceptional reason to travel, you must review University guidance before travelling, and complete an intention to travel form.

The University is offering asymptomatic Covid-19 testing until 31 March to those students who are on-campus.  You can find more information, including details of how to book a test, on the University website.

Health Services

This year in particular, it's really important to make sure you are registered with a doctor close to where you live.  The University provides guidance on health services, including doctors and pharmacies, dentists and opticians, sexual and reproductive health, on the Health services webpage.
