Having to cope/live with anxiety during uni is common and could shape your entire university experience but know that you are not alone.
Moving away from home, deadline pressures, time management, work placements and passing your entire course can be huge factors in developing uni life anxiety. Disturbance in one can unbalance your whole life causing that inability to ‘cope.’
Here are some tips to help you in coping with anxiety while studying at university…
Identify The Problem
Are you unable to concentrate and focus on certain tasks? Analise your schedule and see where in the day you think things may start to unravel for you. Are there certain points/tasks in your day that seem to kick off your anxiety?
We are all guilty of procrastinating from time to time. Identify what you do to procrastinate and what you are actually trying to avoid doing. List all the things you need to do in order of priority and make your way through it. And that thing you always do to procrastinate, stop it.
Opening up about your fears and feelings can really help. You won’t be burdening anybody either before you think it. That’s what friends are for.
If you feel too embarrassed talking to somebody close to you, organise a meeting with your university counsellor or even your GP.
There is absolutely no shame in mental health.

Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
