Look after yourself

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 us. You’re not alone.

Counselling and Wellbeing Service

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 20-minute drop-ins, wellbeing workshops, online support with Silvercloud as well as many self-help resources.

Faiths and Beliefs

Our Chaplaincy is available to all students irrespective of faith or commitment. It’s here to support your learning experience, including any spiritual and personal issues you might want to discuss in confidence. To access our Chaplaincy resource, visit our chaplaincy information on My ARU.
