There is so much information available about Coronavirus (COVID-19), but where can you find reliable, trustworthy information?

We have put together a few trusted sources for you to use. And remember, always be critical of information you read, especially online and if it is not from one of these official sources. 

Your wellbeing

As well as keeping up with your studies using the resources available online, remember to look after yourself. Below is a link to Mind, who have set up a page all about looking after your wellbeing during this time. 

We will be moving our workshops online, and have upcoming webinars from some of our online resource providers to help you make the most out of their products. Find out what's coming up on the calendar below.
