The University of Huddersfield Wellbeing and Disability Services are running new workshops this year to support students!

Disability Services:

Disabled Students Allowance: They’ll tell you about the Disabled Students’ Allowance, what it is, the kind of support it provides and the different stages of the application process, and another about

Specific Learning Difficulties: If you think you may have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or dyscalculia come along to a workshop to find out what support is on offer at University.

Further Info available here:

Remember we have five disability co-ordinators in the School, and two disability advisors in the Disability Services team to support you. Why is is important to declare your additional needs and requirements to the University? – check out this handy blog!

Wellbeing Team:

A number of new sessions have been added to the Workshops and Groups Programme run by the Wellbeing team

In addition to the continuing Mind Your Head and Eating Disorders support groups, you can also access Time to be Heard, a support group for student carers, a monthly Bereavement Support group and a Trans and Gender Support Group.

There are also some new additions to the existing workshop programme; ‘Imperfect Perfectionism’ looks at strategies and approaches to perfectionism and the desire to achieve perfect results. The Road to Resilience addresses issues around emotional resilience.

Students can just turn up to support groups and workshops, share common experiences with each other and see how staff may be able to help.
