UC Student Blogger | Returning to campus in unprecedented times

It may be unnerving to return to campus after such a strange and difficult time, but there are things you can do to help yourself get back into your regular study routine and to a sense of normality. UC Student Blogger takes a look at how to take care of yourself in times of change and where you can go to get help. 

“With the lifting of restrictions from Alert Level 2 to Alert Level 1, many students will be able to return to campus for the start of Semester 2.

Many of you would have adapted to the new normal during the lockdown, and we acknowledge that it may be hard for students to adjust back to their old routine. That’s why it is important to look after your health and wellbeing– make sure you take care of yourself and look out for your friends during this unprecedented time

There are some simple things you can do to help yourself adjust to change – for example, make sure you take breaks during study so you don’t wear yourself out, and drink plenty of water. Learning to focus during change is an important skill which will help you develop resilience and improve your future prospects. However, if things are getting out of hand, Student Care and the Academic Skills Centre are always here to help.
