Support during the Fire-break

As we progress through the first half of the ‘fire-break’ we would like to remind that we are here for you should you need any assistance.

If you have any concerns or need support during this time please email MyUniSupport and we will be happy to assist you.

Welsh Government have issued comprehensive guidance regarding higher education so please ensure you are following these regulations during this period.

Sports and Exercise

Exercise is important for physical and mental health, and you can leave home as often as you like to exercise as long as you do so from home and alone or with members of your household. Please remember to follow social distancing rules when you are out and about in the local community, and wear a face covering wherever possible.

During the Firebreak, there will be a range of activities and sessions available online, which you can read about here.
