Student Minds is the leading UK’s student mental health charity, that aims to empower members of the university community to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills to look after their own mental health, support others and create change.

Student Minds have put together a very handy guide for new students, covering a wide range of areas of university life - from study tips to becoming independent, to help you to be prepared for starting your life at university.
