Health and wellbeing

Student in university classroom

We want you to have a happy, successful time here at ARU. No matter what your question or issue is there is always someone who can help you.

Your health and wellbeing is so important. If you’re going through something difficult, or just not feeling quite right, come and talk to the Counselling and Wellbeing Service. You’re not alone.

The Counselling and Wellbeing Service is free, confidential and available to all ARU students. You can talk to us about anything that’s worrying you – from minor concerns to major issues, from grief to relationship difficulties, panic attacks, exam anxieties, stress and anything else.

We offer lots of support, from one to one counselling to workshops and online support with Silvercloud, but we suggest that you take a Self-assessment and calculate your wellbeing score to find out what support is right for you.

Our daily drop in sessions give you the opportunity to have a brief meeting of up to 20 minutes so you can discuss your concerns or find out more about the services we offer.

You can get in touch with the Counselling and Wellbeing Service for support between 9am–5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am–4.30pm on Fridays, but there are many other organisations who can support you if you are experiencing difficulties. Find out more about support from outside ARU.

Academic support

Your Personal Development Tutor is your main point of contact to talk to on a one-to-one basis about your course and your aspirations for the future.

You could discuss your academic progress, personal development, general wellbeing, and any concerns you have that may affect your studies.

General queries

The iCentre is your first stop for general queries, information and advice. They’ll direct you to services who’ll help you with all aspects of university life, including academic advice, financial support, wellbeing support and employability.
