Wellbeing Services

Health and wellbeing are crucial to effective study, as well as a rich and fulfilling student experience. Wellbeing services provide workshops for PGR students in the following areas: Mindfulness, Perfectionism, Managing Stress, Confidence and Resilience, building resilience and maintaining a healthy sleeping pattern. Courses are bookable through My Career Zone by searching ‘Researcher Development Exeter’ under ‘Events’.


Wellbeing Services have a dedicated team of disability specialists called AccessAbility. The service is available to students who experience a range of issues with a specific emphasis on how they are impacting on your ability to study and cope at university.
