This article will provide detailed information on which student wellbeing courses and workshops are available.
Throughout the academic year, the Student Wellbeing Service runs a series of workshops and courses for students (see: events, courses and workshops programme). They are designed to provide a range of opportunities for personal development alongside support for some of the common issues students face.
This year’s programme will help to improve wellbeing as well as providing useful skills for a healthy and balanced life, relationships, and employability. All courses and workshops are run in small groups and offer a chance to share and learn from others in a confidential and relaxed environment. You will not be asked to share personal or sensitive information but will be encouraged to practice strategies and implement them into your own life.
The majority of the workshops can be attended as individual sessions, to make them more accessible for busy students. But for greater understanding and benefit, we have arranged the workshops into three themed series which can each be attended as short courses. Each series runs as a rolling programme, so in most cases you can start the course anywhere in the series. The three themes are:
All courses and workshops take place on a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon in the Nuffield Centre and are only available to current students of the University of Portsmouth. Booking is essential and places are limited.
Each course and workshop has been designed to cover topics relevant to you. The Student Wellbeing Service also run a number of information/awareness events available to students and staff - you can find more information on our events, courses and workshop programme.
Workshops can be very popular, so sign up in advance and please let us know with 24 hours’ notice if you cannot attend. We understand that sometimes things come up unexpectedly and by telling us, we can offer someone else your place.
