Health and lifestyle

Many students are away from home for the first time, while others are learning to juggle studies with work, social and family life.

Striking the right study-life balance can be difficult, and sometimes you may struggle to maintain one or more aspect – for example, your diet or exercise regime may suffer, or you may find your relationships becoming strained.

Good physical and mental health can help you achieve better academic results, so we provide students with access to programs to sustain healthy learning, working and living environments.
