An exercise in wellbeing

Mental health is an important issue for the University and our students. Over the past year, student demand for our student counselling services has increased by 35%. Gifts from alumni to the Footsteps Fund have established the innovative Lifestyle and Wellbeing Programme, which uses exercise and physical activity to support students’ overall health – tackling issues around stress, diet, lifestyle and sleep. Thanks to alumni, 183 students benefited from this programme last year.
