Key Tips to Reduce Student Stress

In addition to the infographic, we wanted to share with you in this article some of our key tips to reduce student stress:

  • Provide health and wellbeing advice through tough exam periods: 
    • Get enough sleep
    • Exercise regularly
    • Eat well
    • Don't rely on stimulants
    • Set realistic expectations
    • Avoid procrastinating
    • Identify a stress outlet. Participating in the campus community can help release pressure and feel less alone (events, peer-to-peer interactions, study sessions...)
    • If you have any issues, don't hesitate to reach out to the institution's staff.
  • Use technology to identify at-risk students and intervene in time. Set up a system to automatically connect students with the resources they need to solve a specific issue.
  • Provide an intuitive, personalised student experience with a centralised system. Integrate all resources and information in one same digital environment students can easily access through their smartphone, which is the object they spend the most time using.
  • Implement student support programs to provide opportunities for academic development, assist students with basic university requirements and motivate them toward successfully completing their studies.
  • Raise teachers' awareness and insist on their role to help students in stressful times. Here are a few things they can do to support students: 
    • Discussing their fear and anxiety with them
    • Preparing them for the different exam topics
    • Creating with them a schedule for the test preparation
    • Etc.
