Health and wellbeing

Here at University College Birmingham, we want to help you get the most out of your time with us. We recognise that good health and wellbeing are fundamental for effective study and a positive student experience.

There are many environmental stresses and personal difficulties which are likely to affect you as a student, so University College Birmingham has a free and confidential Health & Wellbeing Service which is open to everyone.

The service strives to promote and encourage healthy lifestyles and positive mental health, and the team is on-hand to help you manage any difficulties or concerns you may have.

For further information on health and wellbeing support at University College Birmingham, including the types of support available and information on how to access the service, please read through the Health and wellbeing booklet.
