Studying can be demanding. It is natural to feel anxious about this, particularly at times of extra pressure such as exams and deadlines. Thereare many factors in our lives that can also contribute to anxiety, including those that are part of the student experience,such as living away from home, cohabiting with other students, socialising or personal finances.
Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. However, problems with anxiety arise when we start to feel anxious more often and more intensely, when there is no real danger, and it seems to happen without reason. Anxiety can stop you doing what you want to do in day to day life, get in the way of your studies or impact on your relationships. The good news is there are lots of things that can help.
