Postgraduate study has its own challenges that sometimes result in stress and unhappiness affecting academic performance. Problems can arise with motivation and focus, be exacerbated by a sense of isolation, or by not knowing how to access help.
Managing the potentially conflicting demands of everyday life and work while undertaking a postgrad programme, can strain coping strategies and relationships. And, of course, postgraduates can be affected by all the personal issues that any student might encounter.
If this sounds familiar, then you’ll be pleased to hear that the Psychology and Counselling Service (PCS) at Sussex have pulled together their resources specifically for postgrads. You can take advantage of these free services:
- One-to-one counselling
- Procrastination workshops (for postgrads only)
- Insomnia workshops (for postgrads only)
- Access the CALM series of online self-help resources that offer help with anxiety; depression; stress; insomnia; and more.
Find out more from the PCS Postgrad page.
