Looking after yourself - You should try to keep a good balance between work and relaxation while on the course. Pursuing interests, sports and hobbies will help keep you in good shape, both physically and mentally. The University has a lively Student Union with various clubs and societies for students to join. If you can't find something you like, try a google search for a local-based community group instead. Get outdoors in the fresh air as much as you can - our campuses have easy access to nearby parks and green-walks - take a look at the Campus sections for links to other resources in your area.
