The importance of supporting students' mental health and wellbeing online, not only during lockdown but at all times
There is no denying that university life can be stressful for many, at the best of times. Students are being forced to navigate a new environment, adapt to the move away from teacher-led classroom learning towards self-motivated study, and remain on top of the seemingly endless stream of looming deadlines.

With lockdown measures being enacted in countries across the globe, recent reports have suggested many universities are facing the prospect of refunding tuition fees - following an online petition of 266,000 students who face starting the academic year in social isolation. However, the current crisis has seen those institutions which have been built for remote learning and long-distance higher education become vital support structures for those seeking to continue their education uninterrupted.
