The Study Happy Team
The Study Happy Team won a Merit and Achievement Award for Best Achievement in Wellbeing in 2018.
This team understand that to provide students with a great experience whilst at the University we must not only support their academic studies but their mental health and wellbeing.
Now in its 5th year, the Study Happy initiative is a cross team working project that offers multiple events for students that facilitate activities for relaxation during intense study periods. Held in the Library Free zone, and promoted through social media, the week-long events help students destress by being transformed in to a space to chill out with optional activities such as massages, meditation, VR mindfulness, wellbeing wall and drop in sessions. By creating a safe and secure place away from their studies, students are able to relax and understand the importance of looking after themselves as well as their education. With great positive feedback from the students, this initiative really puts the student wellbeing at the forefront on their focus.
