SU services, resources and tips

Juggling full-time studies alongside a part-time job and other commitments is never easy, and especially around exam and assessment times. We've put together some Time Management Tips for Working Students which gives a few pointers on ways you can balance your commitments whilst looking after your wellbeing.
