Get Your Finances Sorted!


Study of all kinds is getting progressively more expensive in the UK, resulting in extra stress being heaped on students. The good news is that, with wise choices, you can largely eliminate financial stress from your life. As a postgraduate student you want to try and obtain the best funding package you possibly can, right from the outset. Many UK postgraduates receive in excess of £10,000/year to live on which makes living expenses far more manageable. Seriously compare the funding options open to you and look for the most attractive financial offer that still makes sense from a study perspective. Be sure to check to see if a postgraduate bursary is available.

#2 Work Out At The Uni Gym


Nothing beats working out to leave you feeling re- energised, revitalised and massively less stressed. With a heavily subsidised Uni gym on offer there is no excuse not to.


Build Strong Friendships


As a postgraduate student it is tempting to throw yourself so completely into your studies that everything else comes second. While tempting, it is actually a mistake, not least from a social perspective. Friendships and social interaction are incredibly important when it comes to dealing with stress and so you should definitely not neglect them completely in favour of non-stop study (except, perhaps, at exam time!).


#4 Take Advantage of Help on Offer


Thankfully nowadays, with the more modern approach to stress, there is plentiful help available if you need it and student wellbeing is a priority. Be sure to check out the support that’s on offer from tutors, counsellors and other helpful sources.
