Wellbeing workshops

A range of workshops are available to help you improve your health and wellbeing while studying at university.

Student Wellbeing runs a series of group workshops available throughout the year—from one-off workshops to weekly classes and workshop series.

Workshops are led by experienced facilitators experts who understand student life. Wellbeing workshops will help you develop skills and strategies for overall wellbeing that support you to study well.

On campus workshops


In this class you'll practice simple meditations that can make a difference to your wellbeing and enjoyment of life. Meditation supports your study by helping you focus, concentrate, and be present with tasks you are engaged in. It also gives you tools to manage stress and tap into your own resilience, strength, compassion and confidence.
