Talk Campus

 TalkCampus is a free, private, multi-language service delivered via an app, where students can talk with other students from around the world about the ups and downs of life. Your student email address will give you free access for six months after you graduate. 

 The app is anonymous, it isn’t run by the University and we won’t be able to see who is using it, and you won’t be able to see where other students are located. As TalkCampus is based around peer support, you can use it if you need some help or you can go on there and listen and support others.  

 The platform is safe and moderated and is designed as a place where you can just be yourself and talk about how you’re really feeling.  TalkCampus is not a replacement for counselling or professional support, however it is a great place to start talking and to make sure that however you’re feeling right now, you are not alone.  

Aside from global peer to peer support, the app features blogs, podcasts, news articles, pertinent resources and much more.  These are all configurable so you can amend the settings so you only see the content you are interested in. 

 You can read more about TalkCampus, with links to download at or download the app, by searching for TalkCampus from your chosen app store.  



The iNCLude self-help app is designed to help you take small steps to improve and maintain your wellbeing. The app has been designed with specialists, using evidence-based methodology and looks at how to maximise your experience at University and for six months after graduation by creating positive habits.

 The app encourages you to connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and to give.  These are the five ways to wellbeing, promoted by the NHS and other wellbeing service providers.

The app features blogs, podcasts, news articles, and pertinent resources.  However, what separates this is the heightened interactive content.  There are questionnaires to take, you can track your wellbeing, set yourself goals and challenges, tracking of habits and help with coping skills. 

Seach iNCLude in your chosen app store to download today. When signing in, sign up as a student and use your student email address. You will have access for six-months after you have graduated to the app.
