Being a student brings a unique set of stressors - the article describes them as; academic level of coursework, volume of coursework, commitments outside the course, examinations and hours of study required. Gulp! Don't be put off! You have all those coping strategies to use remember - plus your own personal strategies you have developed over the years! You are in good company too - everyone else on your programme is probably feeling just the same!
Planning and prioritising is also the key. And don't suffer in silence - I wasn't very good at visiting my personal tutor while I was a student and would attempt to work things out by myself. Far less painful to go and talk things through in reality! Plus don't forget the other popular concept of work life balance. Something we encourage our service users to achieve but sometimes we overlook on a personal level? Support each other and enjoy the challenges academic study brings - it is all worth it in the end :-)
