Student Support FAQs

I’m feeling anxious about leaving home, is there any support at Leeds Conservatoire?

We can offer; informal wellbeing advice, exploring a range of topics from healthy eating and sleep to homesickness, confidential counselling to help you to explore difficult thoughts and feelings and tailored mental health support if you have any long standing mental health issues.

You can access our Health & Wellbeing services by filling in the online form on Space. If you are having any difficulties, please email healthandwellbeing@leedsconservatoire.ac.uk

Is this support available on campus?

The support that we provide will be offered within the main building subject to safety advice relating to social distancing, cleaning and circulation or via email or Microsoft Teams. Sometimes a referral to an external agency or advice around self-help materials might be more helpful to you. We can work with you to identify what type of support would best meet your needs during your time with us.

Will any of the Health & Wellbeing group sessions be going ahead in the new academic year if social distancing remains in place?

Yes, we are planning to offer some group sessions remotely if social distancing remains in place; we are keen to continue to offer all of our existing services, even if this is remotely via MS Teams video sessions or Zoom.

As an international student I am worried that due to social distancing measures and needed self-isolation I will feel lonely and won’t be able to make new friends – is there any special support for me?

Current guidance is that if required, self-isolation lasts 14 days upon arrival; after that if you have not developed any symptoms, you will be able to meet people outside your household. You can look up the current guidelines here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing

We are planning a variety of different activities (in person and online) for new students to get to know each other and have the best possible start in Leeds. Many of these can be done whilst self-isolating. You can find information on all of the events, plus a group for new students on the Leeds Conservatoire Students' Union Facebook Page.

If you’re struggling with adjusting to your new life in the UK, you can contact the International Student Wellbeing Adviser for support and advice: HealthandWellbeing@leedsconservatoire.ac.uk
