De-Stresstival

Taking time out to relax, doing the things you enjoy and giving your brain a chance to rest is absolutely vital during the exam season. So in the midst of all that revision, dissertation writing and exam-sitting, we’ve put on a buffet of fun, relaxing and delicious events to give you an excuse to take a break and forget about all that hard work – even if it’s just for an hour or two. Come along to our De-Stresstival events – all throughout your exam season.

Remember, if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed at times, we’re here to help. Guild Advice & Student Mentors have put together some really handy exam stress tips and information on Extenuating Circumstances. Feel free to drop in for a chat, too!

Take the stress out of the exam season with your Students’ Union this May…
