Staying in touch with friends or family

Students taking a selfie in the Science and Industry Museum

We get calls from parents, carers and concerned supporters all the time, because when a lot of students start at university, they sometimes forget to contact home!

Being in a different city to your supporters can be hard for you and hard for them, which is why it’s important to keep in contact if you wish to. We’ve got some ideas of how to do that below.

Some of our content may not show safety measures we need to take during this time. They were recorded before the pandemic, so please ensure you follow up-to-date guidance and stay safe.
