Are you not feeling well? We are here to help
We understand that it is not easy being a student right now. If you are not feeling well while studying at home, we have collected some advice of where to turn to for support and social interaction.
Distance learning, cancelled social activities and involuntary loneliness are some of the things that can lead to anxiety and depression. The results of the student survey we sent out in December show that many of you feel unwell and the University is actively working on giving you the best possible support to improve your well-being.
You can talk to the Student Healthcare Centre about anything
All students are welcome to the Student Healthcare Centre. Turn to them if you want to talk about anything related to your health. Maybe you feel lonely, stressed or are having trouble sleeping? Maybe you are anxious for an upcoming exam, or having difficulties focusing and finding motivation when you are studying at home?
No matter what it is, the Student Healthcare Centre is available if you want advice or just need someone to talk to. Get in touch and you will receive a response within 24 hours, on weekdays.
Get to know other students by joining an association
The University has several student associations and programme associations with the aim to strengthen the community among students and arrange activities to increase the study experience. There are many associations with different specializations, so if you feel lonely, this is an easy way to get to know students with similar interests and find your social community.

Social activities can increase well-being
The University, the Student Union and the student associations organise various activities for students. You can easily find everything that is going on in the student calendar. Activities are added continuously so make sure to check in regularly so you do not miss anything fun!
The Study Support Centre helps you with distance learning
When studying at home, finding focus and motivation can be difficult. It is easy to get distracted and start doing other things instead of what was planned. The Study Support Centre can help you with advice on how to find good routines when you study from home. One tip is, for example, to regularly book in digital meetings with your classmates to discuss the current tasks, have a coffee break and just talk to each other during the day. Having a few time slots booked during the day makes it easier to get into routines and the social part makes the studies more fun.
